There isn't really a is-like-a relationship, not a standard one atleast. The is-a relation sometimes can be interchanged with is-like-a for example - Apple is like a fruit. As a purist I don't agree with this description completely because is-like-a sounds like Apple is an incomplete Fruit, though it has many properties of the Fruit. Cheers!
