Is that in SPARQL 1.1?

Any thoughts on the I18N aspect of choosing between keywords vs
punctuation? How does the use of english words 'is', 'of' look for
people who don't speak English (or related? or latin-script?)
languages. What would be most readable e.g. in China?

BTW as a native English speaker, I find this 'is' and 'of'
construction somewhat confusion, esp when properties themselves have
'of' embedded in their name (generally a mistake --- I wish we'd
called rdfs:subClassOf rdf:superClass instead).

If I tell you ...

:c1 is rdfs:subClassOf of :c2

...how long does it take you to be able to tell me which of :c1 or :c2
is the more general class?

cheers,

Dan
