Jump to navigation Jump to search

Troponymy is the presence of a 'manner' relation between two lexemes.

The notion was originally proposed by Christiane Fellbaum and George Miller.[1] Some examples they gave are "to nibble is to eat in a certain manner, and to gorge is to eat in a different manner. Similarly, to traipse or to mince is to walk in some manner".[2]

Troponymy is one of the possible relations between verbs in the semantic network of the WordNet database.
