This paper introduces a design pattern that allows for the OWL 2 DL representation of concepts central to social reality: roles. The work presented here is motivated by experiences in the development of the LKIF Core ontology of basic legal concepts [10,8]. This paper applies modelling steps identied in earlier work for the representation of transactions  to the domain of roles. This is done by building on Searle's theory of social reality . We use the new features of OWL 2 to approximate a reied relation, and show how the approach of  can be reused to dene a pattern for capturing roles, intentional concepts and n-ary relations .
