SUMO class

The Suggested Upper Merged Ontology (SUMO), a product of the IEEE Standard Upper Ontology Working Group[?], is an upper ontology that defines a hierarchy of a number of general classes, the SUMO classes.

SUMO concerns itself with meta-level concepts, and thereby would lead naturally to a categorization scheme for encyclopedias.

Here is an alphabetical list of the SUMO classes. A graphical representation of their hierarchical relations is available from the "External links".
