Subject: RE: [wscm] Motion for a WSIA Glossary of Terms

Hi Everyone,

I have another sample, from the HumanMarkup TC, labelled (1) below, 
and I would like to remind you all that it is in unformatted 
text-only. That means you need to save it locally, and open it in the 
word-processing program of your choice. We perceived this need for a 
glossary also, and I would like to add that there are a wealth of 
non-congruous terms between XML, RDF and UML which I formalized in 
the column headers of a strawman table of classes, (2) below,  and 
properties derived from our ontological taxonomical frameworks, (3) 
below (also a text-only file).

Clarifying how we mean to use these terms is another idea you might 
want to consider for the operational terms in this glossary for TSIA, 
as long a we are collecting the base or foundational materials for 
the building of our lexical vocabularies. Notions of  Element, Class, 
Attributes, and Type (which, as the definition of Class) in RDF I did 
not specify in the headers), Methods vs. Operations, etc need such 
clarification for us in a more formal manner than a strawman  OO 
Class Hierarchy such as I constructed as the basis for an 
out-of-scope exercise for HumanML (more for my own later purposes in

3 http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/humanmarkup/documents/HM.frameworks.txt

Last note, I am not submitting the HumanML glossary as a basis for 
TSIA, let alone the practices I adopted, but rather as another 
example of expanding upon terms when appropriate in a monograph that 
adds further explication of TSIA use of a term.
