OK, I'll bite. Using the Wordnet namespace, we can represent
most (all?) of the nouns.

<rdf:RDF
xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
xmlns="http://xmlns.com/wordnet/1.6/">
<Farmer/>
</rdf:RDF>

Gets us "farmer" (although it does not get us "the farmer").

But I don't believe Wordnet verbs have been converted to RDF,
or am I missing something? How are we going to represent the
verbs?

My head is not good at this abstract stuff. I need examples
to build on.
