Relationships      
Parents binary relation BinaryRelations are relations that are true only of pairs of things. BinaryRelations are represented as slots in frame systems.
  inheritable relation The class of Relations whose properties can be inherited downward in the class hierarchy via the subrelation Predicate.
  predicate A Predicate is a sentence-forming Relation. Each tuple in the Relation is a finite, ordered sequence of objects. The fact that a particular tuple is an element of a Predicate is denoted by '(*predicate* arg_1 arg_2 .. arg_n)', where the arg_i are the objects so related. In the case of BinaryPredicates, the fact can be read as `arg_1 is *predicate* arg_2' or `a *predicate* of arg_1 is arg_2'.
