Children 
component  A specialized common sense notion of part for heterogeneous parts of complexes. (component ?COMPONENT ?WHOLE) means that ?COMPONENT is a component of ?WHOLE. Examples of component include the doors and walls of a house, the states or provinces of a country, or the limbs and organs of an animal. Compare piece, which is also a subrelation of part. 
 geneticSubstrateOfVirus  (geneticSubstrateOfVirus ?VIRUS ?MOL) relates the virus ?VIRUS to the molecule ?MOL that contains its genetic information. 
 half  (half ?HALF ?WHOLE) means that ?HALF is one half of ?WHOLE. 
 inString  (inString ?Character ?SymbolicString) means that ?Character is part of ?SymbolicString. See also subString. 
 interiorPart  (interiorPart ?OBJ1 ?OBJ2) means that ?OBJ1 is part ?OBJ2 and there is no overlap between ?OBJ1 and any superficialPart ?OBJ2. 
 most  (most ?MOST ?WHOLE) means that ?MOST is a part of ?WHOLE that is greater than half of ?WHOLE. 
 pathInSystem  (pathInSystem ?PATH ?SYSTEM) means that the Physical thing ?PATH consists of one or more connected routes in the PhysicalSystem ?SYSTEM. 
 physicalEnd  A notion of an indeterminate portion at the end of an Object that has a LongAndThin ShapeAttribute. 
 piece  A specialized common sense notion of part for arbitrary parts of Substances. Quasisynonyms are: chunk, hunk, bit, etc. Compare component, another subrelation of part. 
 properPart  (properPart ?OBJ1 ?OBJ2) means that ?OBJ1 is a part of ?OBJ2 other than ?OBJ2 itself. This is a TransitiveRelation and AsymmetricRelation (hence an IrreflexiveRelation). 
 quarter  (quarter ?QUART ?WHOLE) means that ?QUART is a quarter of ?WHOLE. 
 subString  (subString ?SymbolicString1 ?SymbolicString2) means that ?SymbolicString1 is part of ?SymbolicString2. ?SymbolicString2 includes all the same Characters as ?SymbolicString1 and in the same order, but ?SymbolicString2 may include more Characters than ?SymbolicString1. See also inString. 
 third  (third ?THIRD ?WHOLE) means that ?THIRD is one third of ?WHOLE. 
Instances  abstrait  Properties 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. 
 relation antisym�trique  BinaryRelation ?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. 
 pr�dicat binaire  A Predicate relating two items  its valence is two. 
 relation binaire  BinaryRelations are relations that are true only of pairs of things. BinaryRelations are represented as slots in frame systems. 
 entit�  The universal class of individuals. This is the root node of the ontology. 
 InheritableRelation  The class of Relations whose properties can be inherited downward in the class hierarchy via the subrelation Predicate. 
 relation partiellement dirig�e  A BinaryRelation is a partial ordering if it is a ReflexiveRelation, an AntisymmetricRelation, and a TransitiveRelation. 
 predicat  A Predicate is a sentenceforming 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'. 
 relation r�flexive  Relation ?REL is reflexive iff (?REL ?INST ?INST) for all ?INST. 
 relation  The Class of relations. There are two kinds of Relation: Predicate and Function. Predicates and Functions both denote sets of ordered ntuples. The difference between these two Classes is that Predicates cover formulaforming operators, while Functions cover termforming operators. 
 relation spatial  The Class of Relations that are spatial in a wide sense. This Class includes mereological relations and topological relations. 
 relation total  A Relation is a TotalValuedRelation just in case there exists an assignment for the last argument position of the Relation given any assignment of values to every argument position except the last one. Note that declaring a Relation to be both a TotalValuedRelation and a SingleValuedRelation means that it is a total function. 
 relation transitive  A BinaryRelation ?REL is transitive if (?REL ?INST1 ?INST2) and (?REL ?INST2 ?INST3) imply (?REL ?INST1 ?INST3), for all ?INST1, ?INST2, and ?INST3.
