What is the meaning of Connotative Link?
A link where causality may act in either direction at
different times or under varying circumstances is known as a
connotative link. A connotative link suggests
causality is ill-defined, open to interpretation, or requiring further observation
and investigation. Connotative links are often use to connect concepts
having a system policy input. Varying such a concept may
have significant impact on connected concepts. Connotative relationships are depicted
by lines without arrowheads. One convention used io depict connotation
between two concepts is by use of dotted lines.
