I disagree, surely that is easier in RDF, than it is in English, where we
have the problem of married refering to more than one thing, in RDF, we
have a URI for "conducted a marriage service"

<foaf:Person rdf:about="#Priest">
<terms:Profession>Priest</terms:Profession>
<terms:conductedMarriageServiceFor rdf:resource="#Man"/>
</foaf:Person>
<foaf:Person rdf:about="#Man">
<terms:Sex>Man</terms:Sex>
</foaf:Person>

Jim.
