Sememe

"There are five types of sememes: two denotational and three connotational, with connotational occurring only in phrase units (they do not reflect the denotation)

Denotational 1: Primary denotation, for example "head" (body);

Denotational 2: Secondary denotation by resemblance with other denotation: "head" (ship);

Connotational 1: High position, as the role or function of "head" in the operation of the human body;

Connotational 2: Emotive, e.g., meaning in "honey";

Connotational 3: Evaluative, e.g., meaning in "sneak" – move silently and secretly for a bad purpose"
