;; is a simplified form of the popular KIF knowledge representation language. A
;; specification of SUO-KIF can be found at:
;; The SUMO is a modular ontology. That is, the ontology is divided into
;; self-contained subontologies. Each subontology is indicated by a section
;; header, and the dependencies between the subontologies are specified with
;; statements of the form ";; INCLUDES '<SUBONTOLOGY>'". These statements are
;; found at the beginning of each section.
;; We ask the people using or referencing SUMO cite our primary paper:

;; Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Formal Ontology in
;; Information Systems (FOIS-2001), Chris Welty and Barry Smith, eds,

;; The Structural Ontology consists of definitions of certain syntactic
;; abbreviations that can be both heuristically useful and computationally
;; advantageous.

(documentation Proposition EnglishLanguage "&%Propositions are &%Abstract entities that
express a complete thought or a set of such thoughts. As an example,
the formula '(instance Yojo Cat)' expresses the &%Proposition that the
entity named Yojo is an element of the &%Class of Cats. Note that
propositions are not restricted to the content expressed by individual
sentences of a &%Language. They may encompass the content expressed by
theories, books, and even whole libraries. It is important to distinguish
&%Propositions from the &%ContentBearingObjects that express them. A
&%Proposition is a piece of information, e.g. that the cat is on the mat,
but a &%ContentBearingObject is an &%Object that represents this information.
A &%Proposition is an abstraction that may have multiple representations:
strings, sounds, icons, etc. For example, the &%Proposition that the cat is
on the mat is represented here as a string of graphical characters displayed
on a monitor and/or printed on paper, but it can be represented by a sequence
of sounds or by some non-latin alphabet or by some cryptographic form")
