member
A specialized common sense notion of part for uniform parts of Collections. For example, each sheep in a flock of sheep would have the relationship of member to the flock.
Relationships      
Children associateInOrganization(associateInOrganization ?AGENT ?GROUP) means that ?AGENT is associated in some way with the Group ?GROUP. This includes participation as a guest or observer, as well as being a full member. See member for a more specific relation.
 groupMemberA subrelation of member, groupMember is used to relate a Human to a GroupOfPeople of which he/she is a member.
 student(student ?AGENT ?ORG) means that ?AGENT is enrolled in the EducationalOrganization ?ORG.
 teacher(teacher ?AGENT ?ORG) means that ?AGENT is a teacher at the EducationalOrganization ?ORG.
InstancesAbstractProperties or qualities as distinguished from any particular embodiment of the properties/qualities in a physical medium. Instances of Abstract can be said to exist in the same sense as mathematical objects such as sets and relations, but they cannot exist at a particular place and time without some physical encoding or embodiment.
 AntisymmetricRelationBinaryRelation ?REL is an AntisymmetricRelation if for distinct ?INST1 and ?INST2, (?REL ?INST1 ?INST2) implies not (?REL ?INST2 ?INST1). In other words, for all ?INST1 and ?INST2, (?REL ?INST1 ?INST2) and (?REL ?INST2 ?INST1) imply that ?INST1 and ?INST2 are identical. Note that it is possible for an AntisymmetricRelation to be a ReflexiveRelation.
 AsymmetricRelationA BinaryRelation is asymmetric if and only if it is both an AntisymmetricRelation and an IrreflexiveRelation.
 BinaryRelationBinaryRelations are relations that are true only of pairs of things. BinaryRelations are represented as slots in frame systems.
 EntityThe universal class of individuals. This is the root node of the ontology.
 InheritableRelationThe class of Relations whose properties can be inherited downward in the class hierarchy via the subrelation Predicate.
 IntransitiveRelationA BinaryRelation ?REL is intransitive only if (?REL ?INST1 ?INST2) and (?REL ?INST2 ?INST3) imply not (?REL ?INST1 ?INST3), for all ?INST1, ?INST2, and ?INST3.
 IrreflexiveRelationRelation ?REL is irreflexive iff (?REL ?INST ?INST) holds for no value of ?INST.
 RelationThe Class of relations. There are three kinds of Relation: Predicate, Function, and List. Predicates and Functions both denote sets of ordered n-tuples. The difference between these two Classes is that Predicates cover formula-forming operators, while Functions cover term-forming operators. A List, on the other hand, is a particular ordered n-tuple.
