Gärdenfors I 34
Concepts/Langacker/Gärdenfors: (Langacker 1987): Thesis: one concept presupposes another concept. GärdenforsVsLangacker: this is ambiguous: a) a car part can be replaced, the car remains a car - b) but this is not the case with color compositions. Therefore, the color space has no meronic structure. (Meronomic: part-whole structure).
Solution/Gärdenfors: my assumption of the convexity of regions: what lies between two points in the conceptual domain has the same property as the concepts located at the two outer points. (> domain/Gärdenfors).
