Definition of Answers
Answers are created differently from other entities in such a way that they are being created from relevant Questions. Answers cannot exist independently from Questions. In order to create an answer go to any Question and find a button called "Add your answer".
Answers have following properties:
- Text - The wording of the Answer itself.
- Terms - The Answer text is divided into words and/or phrases where each such division token is treated as a Term. If a Term needs to be highlighted by giving explicit meaning, then such Term needs to be linked to appropriate existing Term entity, and additionally a Term Instance if specific term variation is used.
- Explanation - Full text explanation of the Answer. Extra details or information that did not fit into other structured properties can be added. Explanation supports Markdown syntax and can include other Entities.
- References - One or more reference to outside literature where further information can be found.
- Proposition - Optionally linked Proposition that expands on the Answer in more detail.
It is recommended to have minimal information in Answers themselves and put all information into a linked Proposition.
Answers can't be accessed directly, but are part of underlying Question.
