Hi everybody,

Yes, in a lot of cases, in a particular thesaurus, we need to think about
the antonym relationship between concepts, which refers to SKOS-Core.
However, as Bernard Vatant indicate, we can treat the antonym relation as a
sub-property of SKOS:related or SKOS:synonyms.

what i want to mention is that for SKOS-Mapping, in most cases, we really
need to declare antonym relations between different concepts from different
vocabularies, for example, antiradar system Vs. radar. in this case, whether
we need to develop a new relationship called "SKOS:antonyms" or donot create
any conceptaul connections between them is worth considering. Because in
SKOS-Mapping, we can find the mapping relationships defined are just based
on equivalence between concepts, such as, exact match, broadmatch,
narrowmatch, majormatch, minormatch. It is difficult to derive a antonym
relation from these defined inter-mapping relations.


Kind regards.
