A tactic connector in a relational network is a point at which the tactics interconnects with the realizational lines. Notated as a diamond, a small rotated square, which corresponds to the term, diamond node, by which it was known formerly.


"Well" in English is ambiguous:

  • A noun meaning the hole in the ground with water at the bottom.
  • An adjective opposed to sick.
  • An adverb corresponding to "good".
  • A conjunction, as in "Well, I don't know."

What we have corresponding to this four-way ambiguity is an upward OR node with four lines leading up to four tactic connectors, which bring together realizational lines from the conceptual system, one for each sense, with incoming lines from the tactics that determine which sense gets realized as the expression "well".
