We have learned what it means for a concept to be nested or immediately nested in another concept. Now we apply these notions to define what it means for two concepts to be co-nested.
Two concepts A and B are said to be co-nested if:
Consider the following graph:
Here, the concept [Blink] and the outermost [PartyLight] concept are co-nested. And the innermost [PartyLight] and [Blue] are co-nested. However, [Blue] is not co-nested with [Blink] because they are not both immediately nested in the same concept.
Next, we look at scope rules. Scope rules are important for understanding how much of a graph a quantifier or coreference link applies to. We will use the notion of co-nesting when we define the scope rules.
