If structural patterns are relationships between entities, why isn't inheritance listed?
Inheritance by definition is not a pattern. Inheritance and object composition are basic structures of object orientation which govern the two ways objects can interact with each other. Patterns give us a way to structure that interaction in different ways as per our needs.
