Summary:   Colleagues,

Yesterday's question about needing a term for a distinction in
adjective use yielded lots of helpful responses. The terms I'll
settle on are "relational" and "qualitative". Thanks especially to
Robert Beard.

(ECONOMIC is mainly relational; ECONOMICAL is mainly qualitative;
EDUCATIONAL in 'educational institution' is relational; in
'educational experience' it's qualitative; etc.)
