Terms and Definitions

This section supplements The “Terms and Definitions” section in general Metanorma documentation.

This must be Clause 3.

[[tda]]                      <= anchor if you want it
[source=ISO8601-1]           <= allows inheriting terms and definitions from
another document
== Terms, definitions, symbols and abbreviations   <= can combine T&D and S&A

=== Terms and definitions    <= the real T&D clause

[[term-explicit]]            <= anchor if you want it
==== explicit form           <= term item

date and time representation that uses designator symbols to delimit
time scale components

Term entries within a “Terms and definitions” section

The structure is strict. The following illustrates the complete structure of a term entry.

In the term source ([.source]), all content after the reference and the “comma” is about “modifications” to the original definition.

[[paddy]]                  <= anchor
=== paddy                  <= term
alt:[paddy rice]           <= alternative term
alt:[rough rice]           <= second alternative
deprecated:[cargo rice]    <= deprecated term
domain:[rice]              <= domain

rice retaining its husk after threshing  <= definition

[example]              <= example
Foreign seeds, husks, bran, sand, dust.

NOTE: The starch of waxy rice consists almost entirely of amylopectin. <= note

<<ISO7301,section 3.2>>, The term "cargo rice" is shown as deprecated, <= source
