Is The Same As
|A relationship in which the two subjects are the same.|
Is An Instance Of
A relationship in which one subject (A) is an illustrative case, example, or concretization of another (more abstract) subject (B). A is an instance of B.
|Is A Type Of|
A relationship in which one subject (A) shares or exemplifies characteristics defined by another subject (B). Subject B is usually above the subject A hierarchically.
Example: A cat is a type of pet.
|Is A Variation Of|
A relationship in which two subjects share similar characteristics, but show deviations from each other. Unlike "is a type of", neither subject is above the other hierarchically.
Example: The Cesca chair designed by Marcel Breuer is in the public domain, so the design has been remade and remixed by several manufacturers. Each chair is a variation of the original.
|Is Narrower Than||A relationship in which one subject (A) has a smaller scope than the other subject (B). A is narrower than B.|
|Is Related To||A generic relationship between two subjects; use this only if no other relationship applies.|
|Is The Opposite Of||A relationship of opposition. This includes antonyms.|
