The organization of synsets for nouns in the hipo- hypero-, mero-, and holonym groups (the word A is a meronym of B if A is a part of B; the nose is a part of head, while head is a holonym of nose) is very similar, while the verbs in PMSB follow closely the six branch division {to exist, to have, to move, to do/to, to think/to create, and to sense/to) as suggested by Vidovic Muha [10] is quite different.
* Arabic Relation rules: include 23 relations types between the synsets: hypernymy, hyponymy, antonym, cause, derived, derived related from, entails, member meronym, part meronym, subset meronym, attribute between adjective and noun, participle, pertainym, see also, similar, troponym, instance holonym, subset holonym, part holonym, instance hyponym, disharmonies, class member and verb group [30].
