here the statement is not asserted, only contained in the graph as
reified statement:

<rdf:Statement rdf:ID="r1">
~   <rdf:subject rdf:resource="#ul" />
~   <rdf:predicate rf:resource="dc:languages" />
~   <rdf:object>EN</rdf:object>
</rdf:Statement>


with this the same statement is both asserted and reified.

<rdf:Description rdf:about="#u1">
~  <dc:language rdf:ID="r1">EN</dc:language>
</rdf:Description>

cheers,
