Semilattice semantics for relevant logics were discovered independently by Routley and Urquhart over 10 years ago. A semilattice semantics was first published in , where the weak theory of implication of  and  (i.e., R →, the pure implication fragment of the system R of relevant implication) is shown to be consistent and complete with respect to it. That result was extended in , But the semantics is explored in greatest detail in . As reported in , Fine outfitted the positive semilattice semantics for R+ with a suitable Hilbert-style axiomatisation. (We refer to the system as ◡R+.) In 1980 Charlwood supplied a subscripted system of natural deduction. (See  and .) A subscripted Gentzen system was devised in  and .
Obviously, the central idea of the semilattice semantics is to impose relevant-style valuations on a semilattice (with an identity) used as the underlying model structure. However, in  the contractionless semantics are obtained (quite reasonably) by dropping the idempotence postulate and thus changing the relatively simple semilattice structure into a commutative monoid. Here we show that the semilattice structure can be regained for positive, contractionless relevant implication. Although we have no proofs as yet, we think that this semantics will pave the way for showing completeness for the corresponding subscripted Gentzen and natural deduction systems, as well as the Hilbert-style axiomatization, ◡RW+.
