We’re down to the last four blogposts! So here’s how they will work!
YOU ARE HERE
Blog 9 – Minor Revisions — Proposals for revisions which would not affect more than one than one entry.
Blog 10 – Hierarchal Revisions — Proposals for NTs or BTs that that do not currently exist for terms that do currently exist.
Blog 11 —Original Terminology— Terms that do not currently exist in the controlled vocabulary that are being proposed for inclusion.
Blog 12 – Larger Revisions Proposals for revisions which would affect more than one than one term within the vocabulary. In my final reports, these are accompanied by an Appendix which lists all of the affected terms.
Total number of revisions proposed: 11
In my report, I write:
Generally, these revisions do not affect more than one than one term within the vocabulary. These are mostly small verbiage updates, spelling corrections, or proposing that one term be OTed and updated with a new word. Any changes are in italics.
An example is:
CHANGE: Updating of spelling.
JUSTIFICATION: Moslem is considered to be offensive, the etymology of Muslim (to give oneself to god) and Moslem (a wicked or evil person) are very different.
