2.1 Example

An example of a conceptual graph could be:

  [Graph: {*}]->(Attr)->[Conceptual]

This is a graph representing the phrase "Conceptual graphs". The notation used is called the "linear notation" because it is drawn using linear text. There is another way to draw conceptual graphs, namely the graphical notation:

In the graphical notation, concepts are drawn as rectangles while relations are drawn as circles (or ovals). In the linear notation, concepts have [square brackets] around them, while relations have (parentheses).
