The semantic object you are assigning values to here is derived from
'name', e.g. if the above parser function call were to appear on the
page 'Jon Lang' the call would result in a semantic object 'Jon

So you're creating a glossary entry based off of the properties of a page.  I was talking about creating a glossary entry based off of the values of a subobject.  That is, the information in question doesn't appear on a page called "Jon Lang"; it appears on a page called "SMW participants".  For the sake of this illustration, my first, middle, and last names aren't specified as page properties anywhere on the wiki; the only place they appear is within a subobject on the aforementioned "SMW Participants" page.
