Typical Features of Frames

A frame can represent an individual object or a class of similar objects.

Instead of properties, a frame has slots. A slot is like a property, but can contain more kinds of information (sometimes called facets of the slot):

Frames can inherit slots from parent frames. For example, FIDO (an individual dog) might inherit properties from DOG (its parent class) or MAMMAL (a parent class of DOG).
