  1. What is the most general term for Y in "X.Y = Z" (ie "john.color = red" or "john.like = mary" or john.father = adam)? Y is sometimes called a verb, property, predicate, function, relation, relationship, etc.
  2. Are there any well knows classifications for Y (besides reflexive, symmetric, transitive). For example, the following two group of "verbs" seem to fall in two different classifications: parent, child, boss, employee vs like, hate, bite, hit. What is the name of the two classifications?
