This is what the description is for. In many cases it will be redundant with that.

Many maybe (290 million), but most of the time not (in 8.3 billion cases).

@Lydia_Pintscher, showing description assumes that it is given for each item. Never the case. Any time i search in wikidata, it shows me useless Qnnn, or at most a label, because the search does not use language fallbacks. P-31/P-279 have much higher chance of having more informative label/description than the item itself, especially in the language i'm searching.
