[protege-discussion] Modelling question

I'm teaching myself ontology engineering, and having studied the amino acid
I'm now trying to model a human action ontology.
The Action classes will be e.g.:
With multiple modifier classes, eg:
-- Direction (Forward Or Backward Or Stationary)
-- Speed (Slow Or Medium Or Fast)
-- Rotation (Clockwise Or AntiClockwise)
-- Path (Circular Or Straight)
-- StartingBodySide (StartsOnLeftFoot Or StartsOnRightFoot)
It's pretty simple, but assuming there are many more Actions and Modifiers
to be added, there are going to be an explosion of classes if i try to store
all the combinations of Actions and Modifiers.
I would like to store and search on instances of e.g. a Run that:
StartsOnLeftFoot, Forward, Fast, Circular and Clockwise, or a Walk that:
StartsOnLeftFoot, Forward, Fast, Circular and Clockwise.
My questions is:
Are there any good examples/techniques/practices/design patterns available
to model this type of ontology (especially something using Dolce-Lite)?
Thank you for any tips/pointers/suggestions.
