deal with "labels" of a different species (i.e. with genders). So we have to
record grammatical properties for the "labels". Thus we have "terms" which
are not simple literals.

Romanian inflection *is* rather complicated.  There are some useful  lexical
resources available which may be helpful.  See e.g. Barbu
(2008)<http://www.lrec-conf.org/proceedings/lrec2008/pdf/495_paper.pdf>for
two approaches, and Tufiş
et. al. (2008)<http://www.racai.ro/%7Edanstef/Articles/Romanian_WordNet_Current%20State,_New_Applications_and_Prospects_%282008%29.pdf>for
the current state of  Romanian WordNet, which has the usual WordNet
relationships.
