Object/meaning category

Redirected from Meaning category

The static, conceptual category into which fit all individual items that are instances of it. These items are both what an audio category designated on an object/meaning category refers to and what it signifies (means). Technically, it is a mental exclusion of what is other, an implicative negation phenomenon that excludes or cuts off everything that does not fit in the category.

Tibetan: དོན་སྤྱི། don-spyi
