The CGKAT top-level relation ontology (~ 200 relation types)

In the indented list below, 1) signatures are associated to each relation type. See the CGKAT top-level concept type ontology for more details about the concept types used in the signatures; 2) comments are often associated to the concept types, and in this comments, examples of subtypes are often given. This allow us not to developp each branch. The '%' before a type means that it has more than one supertype. Binary_relation(Concept,Concept) Attributive_relation (Concept,Concept) -- e.g. Chrc, Attr, Manner, Name, Role, Possession, Accompaniment Component_relation (Concept,Concept) -- e.g. Part, Main_Part, Element, Subset, Subtask, FirstSubTask Constraint_or_measure_relation (Concept,Concept) -- e.g. mathematical, spatial and temporal relations Relation_from_a_situation (Situation,Concept) -- i.e. only from a state or a process % Constraint_or_measure_relation_from_a_situation (Concept,Concept) -- i.e. only from a state or a process Descr (Situation,Proposition) -- for describing a situation % Temporal_relation_from_a_situation (Situation,Concept) Situation_temporal_location (Situation,Temporal_entity) -- e.g. Point_in_time, Duration, T_Since, T_Until Temporal_relation_between_situations (Situation,Situation) -- e.g. T_Succ, Task_Succ, Terminaison, Consequence % Spatial_relation_from_a_process (Process,Spatial_entity) -- e.g. Source, Destination, Path Relation_from_a_process (Process,Concept) % Purpose (Process,Situation) -- a purpose of a process is also a reason to do this process % Recipient (Process,Goal_directed_causal_entity) -- e.g. Beneficiary % Experiencer (Process,Goal_directed_causal_entity) % Result (Process,Concept) O (Process,Concept) -- output only object % IO (Process,Concept) -- input-output object, e.g. Object_to_modify, Object_to_mute, State Object (Process,Concept) -- this case relation is also usually called Patient or Theme I (Process,Concept) -- input only object (for example for evaluation or comparison processes) Material (Process,Concept) % Parameter (Process,Concept) SI (Process,Concept) -- static input (e.g. for KADS tasks) DI (Process,Concept) -- dynamic input (e.g. for KADS tasks) % IO (Process,Concept) -- input-output object, e.g. Object_to_modify, Object_to_mute, State % Initiator (Process,W_causal_agent__cause__causal_agency) % Agent (Process,Goal_directed_causal_entity) Instrument (Process,Entity) % Manner (Process,Measure) -- process attribute, e.g. Quickly Method (Process,Process) % SubProcess (Process,Process) -- e.g. SubTask, FirstSubTask, LastSubTask % Spatial_relation_from_a_process (Process,Spatial_entity) -- e.g. Source, Destination, Path Relation_to_a_situation (Concept,Situation) -- i.e. only to a state or a process, e.g. Relation_to_a_process Relation_from_a_proposition (Proposition,Concept) -- e.g. Information_source, Author, Rhetorical_relation, Argumentation_relation Relation_refering_to_a_process (Concept,Concept) -- e.g. Summarize, Change_location Relation_with_a_special_property (Concept,Concept) -- e.g. Transitive_relation, Symmetric_relation, Contextualizing_relation Relation_used_by_an_agent (Concept,Concept) -- for accessing the relation types accepted/used by a (group of) agent(s) Relation_created_by_an_agent (Concept,Concept) -- may be useful when many knowledge engineers work on the same ontology
