Relation: temporally-starts/temporally-started-by

From: Time-Interval

To: Time-Interval


asserts that two Time-Intervals begin together


  1. (The time of) John's wedding starts (the time of) John's marriage.
  2. Comment: Here's how this example might be represented. First, John's wedding is related to its Time-Interval using the time relation, and John's marriage is similarly related to its Time-Interval. Then, the two Time-Intervals are related by the temporally-starts relation.

Neighboring Concepts:

Similar to...But different because...
before Asserts that one Time-Interval comes before another
during Asserts that one Time-Interval is during (completely contained within) another
temporally-overlaps Asserts that one Time-Interval overlaps another, but may not be completely contained within it
temporally-meets Asserts that one Time-Interval meets (abuts) another
temporally-finishes Asserts that two Time-Intervals end together
