Hypernym (e.g. Colours) | V Hyponym (e.g. Brown, yellow)
Does such a hierarchy exist within phrases?

As far as I can tell, a hyperphrase is a convergence of speech, gesture, and gaze, and perhaps other signaling factors. So, my utterance + how I was gesturing at the time + where I was looking and when combine to convey a hyperphrastic message greater than just the words uttered.
