Both terms, concept and prototype occur in semantic texts roughly in the sense a mental object denoted by a word. There should be some difference in definition between the two. Could anyone tell?
I read the following in an elementary text in semantics:
The concepts that we use as word-senses are defined in terms of clear, typical, central, cases (called prototypes), but their boundaries are left unclear.
Yet the relation between the two terminologies concept and prototype still appears very unclear to me.
p.s. My question is about technical sense, precisely in the sense of semantics, not that in everyday language.
