Lewis departed for vacation at lunch time and won't be back till thursday.

So as not to leave you haning for an answer till then...

As taken from http://codip.grci.com/Articulation.daml the comment field for
"A specialization of ObjectProperty that matches its non-empty set of
subjects to its non-empty set of objects."  
The mapping is asymmetric, from the subject ontology to the object ontology.
as described on http://codip.grci.com/Tools/ArtiServicePage.html
More details are discussed on the Service Page.

Seems similar to DCG's but with a Match the specification of the translation
the subject(set) and object(set) is optional.

Hi, Lewis..

Could you please tell me what the semantics of the above are?  Looks to me
doing something similar to a DCG rule in Prolog.  Thanks.
