Submitted by: ValentinaPresutti
Also Known As:
Intent: To represents objects and the roles they play.


Competency Questions:

Solution description: -
Reusable OWL Building Block: (1029)
Consequences: it is possible to make assertions about roles, which are typically considered at the meta-

level of an ontology. Instances of Submissions:Objectrole/Role reify such elements, which are therefore put in the ordinary domain of an ontology. It is not possible to parametrize the classification over different dimensions e.g., time, space, etc.

Scenarios: This old glass is used as a flower pot.
