ATTRIBUTES

action_status

actionStatus

Indicates the current disposition of the Action.

A action_status should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::ActionStatusType']

_has_action_status

A predicate for the "action_status" attribute.

agent

The direct performer or driver of the action (animate or inanimate). e.g. John wrote a book.

A agent should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Organization']
InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Person']

_has_agent

A predicate for the "agent" attribute.

end_time

endTime

The endTime of something. For a reserved event or service (e.g. FoodEstablishmentReservation), the time that it is expected to end. For actions that span a period of time, when the action was performed. e.g. John wrote a book from January to December. For media, including audio and video, it's the time offset of the end of a clip within a larger file. Note that Event uses startDate/endDate instead of startTime/endTime, even when describing dates with times. This situation may be clarified in future revisions.

A end_time should be one of the following types:

Str

_has_end_time

A predicate for the "end_time" attribute.

error

For failed actions, more information on the cause of the failure.

A error should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Thing']

_has_error

A predicate for the "error" attribute.

instrument

A instrument should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Thing']

_has_instrument

A predicate for the "instrument" attribute.

location

The location of for example where the event is happening, an organization is located, or where an action takes place.

A location should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Place']
InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::PostalAddress']
Str

_has_location

A predicate for the "location" attribute.

object

The object upon which the action is carried out, whose state is kept intact or changed. Also known as the semantic roles patient, affected or undergoer (which change their state) or theme (which doesn't). e.g. John read a book.

A object should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Thing']

_has_object

A predicate for the "object" attribute.

participant

Other co-agents that participated in the action indirectly. e.g. John wrote a book with Steve.

A participant should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Organization']
InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Person']

_has_participant

A predicate for the "participant" attribute.

result

The result produced in the action. e.g. John wrote a book.

A result should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Thing']

_has_result

A predicate for the "result" attribute.

start_time

startTime

The startTime of something. For a reserved event or service (e.g. FoodEstablishmentReservation), the time that it is expected to start. For actions that span a period of time, when the action was performed. e.g. John wrote a book from January to December. For media, including audio and video, it's the time offset of the start of a clip within a larger file. Note that Event uses startDate/endDate instead of startTime/endTime, even when describing dates with times. This situation may be clarified in future revisions.
