"Define" a class, or "Declare" a class? "Define" a property, or "Declare" a property?

Hi Folks,

XML Schema distinguishes between "defining" and "declaring", e.g.,
you "define" types, but you "declare" elements.  Does OWL make such a
distinction?  That is, do you "define" a class, or do you "declare" a
class?  Do you "define" a property, or do you "declare" a property?

Thanks!  /Roger
