An extensive literature now exists documenting various lexical relations for representing information about words. This report summarizes the lexical relations recognized in a variety of sources. In addition, we claim that lexical relations themselves form not a class but a taxonomy, with a rich hierarchical structure. We present the outlines of this taxonomy, organize relations identified in a number of works under the taxonomy, and then give a condensed report of over 100 relations derived from the compendium, organized by their hierarchical status.
