An entry definition in the Management API contains a mixture of standard properties and properties that have been defined by the content type that an entry is based on.

Data properties

Data properties are items defined by the fields collection set in a content type.

Standard properties

These are the standard properties that all entries have. The language property is the indexer for the entry data as an entry can have multiple language variations which can be be edited and versioned independently. In the Delivery API context only a single language variation is available on an entry.
