    Semantics

    I am attending a short course about Semantics. My teacher said that there are 6 sense relations in which I have problem with two of them.
    Please explain me 2 following ones:
    1. Hyponymy
    ( Hyponyms & Superordinates)
    2. Homonyny
    ( Homophones and Homographs)
    Help me finding an definition easy to understand and give me some examples! ( I did look up these words in the dictionary but it is very complicated)
    Thanks!

    Sorry for my late reply. I have enjoyed my Lunar New Year at my place.
    I will search these two addresses. They look very useful to me.
    Thanks a lot for your help!
    :)
