WordPress uses a concept of Roles, designed to give the site owner the ability to control what users can and cannot do within the site. A site owner can manage the user access to such tasks as writing and editing posts, creating Pages, defining links, creating categories, moderating comments, managing plugins, managing themes, and managing other users, by assigning a specific role to each of the users.

WordPress has six pre-defined roles: Super Admin, Administrator, Editor, Author, Contributor and Subscriber. Each role is allowed to perform a set of tasks called Capabilities. There are many capabilities including “publish_posts”, “moderate_comments”, and “edit_users”. A default set of capabilities is pre-assigned to each role

Definition of "Role" by Chat GPT: A role is a set of responsibilities, duties or actions that a person is expected to fulfil or perform within a specific context, such as a job or a social group. It may also involve a particular level of authority or power to make decisions, and often comes with certain expectations or standards of behavior. Roles can be formal or informal, and they can change over time depending on the situation or the needs of the organization or group.
