AB - Representing a commutative cancellative subarchimedean semigroup \(S\) as \(\mathbb{N}_i (G, I)\), we consider \(\text{Hom}(S, \mathbb{Q})\) and \(\text{Hom }(G, \mathbb{Q})\), where Q is the additive group of rational numbers. These sets can be given the structure of rational vector spaces. Suitable isomorphic copies of these vector spaces are found by means of certain functions related to some mappings introduced by T. Tamura.
