In Semantic Relationism, Kit Fine proposes semantic relationism, the view that semantic relationship among linguistic expressions is not reducible to their intrinsic semantic features, and combines this view with referentialism, the view that intrinsic semantic features of linguistic expressions are exhausted by their referents.  In this talk, I will point out some difficulties with his account and present a way to overcome them by taking a thorough version of semantic relationism.
