Defining Relationship Phrasings

SQL Server 2000

In English Query, a relationship is an association between entities that describes what those entities have to do with one another. Relationships can be described as simple statements about entities (for example, customers purchase products). More than one join may be required to represent a single relationship.

Phrasings are ways to express a relationship in English. Types of phrasings include name, adjective, subset, preposition, verb, and trait phrasings. For example, customers purchase products is an example of a verb phrasing, and department names are names of departments is an example of a name phrasing. Using different phrasings are a good way to expand a model.
