5. Get to know the dictionary table


Okay, let's try another table, shall we?

In the next couple of exercises, we'll work with words in a dictionary. Do you know that linguists classify words?

Our table contains some English words and their hypernyms.

A hypernym is a term with a broad meaning, that "contains" other terms. For example, the hypernym of "sparrow" is "bird".


Select all data from the dictionary table. It contains the following columns:

  • entry_id - the ID of an entry in the dictionary,
  • word - the word associated with a particular entry,
  • hypernym_id - the ID of an entry that is a hypernym for a particular word.
