English note This relationship is unique and operates between only one pair of entities in the model (i.e. work and expression), being integral to the definition of these two entities. Published
English definition A work is “realized through” expression; conversely, an expression “is a realization of” a work. The logical connection between work and expression, as reflected in the model through the relationship link, serves as the basis both for identifying the work represented by an individual expression and for ensuring that all expressions of a work are linked to the work. Indirectly the relationships between a work and the various expressions of that work also serve to establish an implicit “sibling” relationship between the various expressions of the work.
