Term-file

Short Description

A term-file is a file that defined/specifies a specific term. To facilitate authors, a self-explanatory template file is available.

Purpose

The ability to 'invent' a name for some concept, or to use a different name if it is already known in some scope, is commonly exercised by that work together (or that write software). Basically, this ability enables one to establish a semantics, i.e. a mapping between an idea or concept, and a word or phrase (the term) that can be used in communications, or when reasoning about that idea/concept.

Criterion

a file that defines/specifies a term.
