  9. This semantic category obviously overlaps with hyponymy: both are involved with forming relaionships between words in the same general area of meaning. For parctical purposes, in the case of hyponymy, one should pay attention to the question of which specific term to use, while in the case of semantic field, one’s attention should be turned toward the highly probable collocations the words of each semantic field have in common.
