An attribute is simply a characteristic about something.  It is not the something (that’s more the entity) – but additional information that describes it.

  • In a sentence it’s a noun.
  • In XML it’s likely an attribute of an element
  • In a relational model it’s an attribute of an entity
  • In a glossary it would be characteristics about the term
