Abstract: Dominance and noncommutativity effects are investigated in relative clause descriptions of five conjunctive concepts (birds and pets, sports and games, vehicles and machines, office equipment and writing implements, and shoes and sports equipment). Both asymmetry phenomena are studied at the extensional level (using membership ratings) and at the intensional level (using feature-importance ratings). A clear dominance effect was found for both the membership ratings and the feature-importance ratings, whereas the noncommutativity effect emerged only occasionally in the membership ratings and almost never in the feature-importance ratings. The data suggested that the dominance effect and the much weaker noncommutativity effect have an extensional basis
