Terminologists generally take a conceptual approach which leads them to consider the observed semantic relations between the described concepts. Hence, they are today directing their attention to the works of cognitivists and those who specialize in semantic networks are trying, like them, to build terminological knowledge bases. The object of this paper is to examine the various relations between the constituent parts and the whole, to describe how they interact with the hyponymy (class inclusion), and to view their role in the establishment of equivalences in multilingual terminology. In particular, the typology of meronomic (part-whole) relations proposed by certain cognitivists is compared against the relations which may be observed in nautical terminology.
