The {{Class}} template can be used to define ontology classes.


| labels              =
| comments            =
| rdfs:subClassOf     =
| owl:equivalentClass =
| owl:disjointWith    =
| specificProperties  =


  • labels: should be defined to provide a human-readable version of a class name. Use ISO language code 639-1 (e.g. {{label|en|...}}).
  • comments: should be defined to provide a human-readable description of a class. Use ISO language code 639-1 (e.g. {{comment|en|...}}).
  • rdfs:subClassOf: is used to state that all the instances of one class are instances anothers.
  • owl:equivalentClass:
  • owl:disjointWith:
  • specificProperties: refine property units for this class using SpecificProperty template.

For backwards compatibilty, the following format for labels and comments is also possible but deprecated:

| rdfs:label@en          =
| rdfs:label@..          =
| rdfs:comment@en        =


The definition of the DBpedia ontology class Artist:

| labels          = {{label|en|Artist}}
| comments        = {{comment|en|An artist is a person who creates pieces of art.}}
| rdfs:subClassOf = Person

It will be rendered to this table:

This is the definition of an ontology class.

Show all properties available for this class.

Show class in class hierarchy.
