Sigma KEE - attribute
(attribute ?OBJECT ?PROPERTY) means that ?PROPERTY is a Attribute of ?OBJECT. For example, (attribute MyLittleRedWagon Red).
Parents property This Predicate holds between an instance of Entity and an instance of Attribute. (property ?ENTITY ?ATTR) means that ?ENTITY has the Attribute ?ATTR.
Children bond ratingA measure of the quality and safety of a bond, based on the issuer's financial condition. More specifically, an evaluation from a rating service indicating the likelihood that a debt issuer will be able to meet scheduled interest and principal repayments. Typically, AAA is highest (best), and D is lowest (worst).
 credit ranking(creditRanking ?Agent ?Rating) holds if ?Rating is a FinancialRating based on financial analysis by a credit bureau, of one's financial history, specifically as it relates to one's ability to meet debt obligations. Lenders use this information to decide whether to approve a loan.
 developmental form(developmentalForm ?OBJECT ?FORM) means that ?FORM describes a stage in the individual maturation of ?OBJECT. For example, tadpole and caterpillar are developmentalForms of frogs and butterflies, respectively.
 device state(deviceState ?DEVICE ?STATE) means that the Object ?DEVICE is in the DeviceStateAttribute ?STATE.
 economy type(economyType ?POLITY ?TYPE) means that the GeopoliticalArea ?POLITY has an economic system of TYPE.
 government type(governmentType ?BODY ?FORM) means that the GeopoliticalArea or Organization ?BODY has a government with characteristic(s) of the type ?FORM.
 hasGUEState(hasGUEState ?GUIE ?STATE) means that the GUIElement ?GUIE has the GUElementState, ?STATE.
 has molecular structural attribute(hasMolecularStructuralAttribute ?MOL ?ATT) means that ?MOL has the attribute ?ATT.
 host status(hostStatus ?Computer ?Status) means that ?Status describes the status of the Computer, such as HostDown, HostReady.
 music genre(musicGenre ?MR ?ATTR) relates the MusicGenre ?ATTR to the MusicRecording ?MR
 organizational objective(organizationalObjective ?AGENT ?FOCUS) means that the Agent ?AGENT has significant aims and concerns characterized by the AreaOfConcern ?FOCUS.
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.
 antisymmetric relationBinaryRelation ?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.
 asymmetric relationA BinaryRelation is asymmetric if and only if it is both an AntisymmetricRelation and an IrreflexiveRelation.
 binary predicateA Predicate relating two items - its valence is two.
 binary relationBinaryRelations 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.
 inheritable relationThe class of Relations whose properties can be inherited downward in the class hierarchy via the subrelation Predicate.
 irreflexive relationRelation ?REL is irreflexive iff (?REL ?INST ?INST) holds for no value of ?INST.
 predicateA 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'.
 relationThe Class of relations. There are two kinds of Relation: Predicate and Function. 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.
 total valued relationA 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.
