  • Summary:

    Issue: Stand-Alone 'Must' in a Necessity

    The second Necessity for "adopted definition" on p.137 includes a stand-alone "must". Use of a stand-alone "must", with its inherent sense of obligation, in Necessities is inappropriate. (In reviewing the whole document, this is the only case I find of its use in a Necessity.)

    Resolution

    Change:

    Necessity: Each adopted definition must be of a concept in the body of shared meanings that unites the semantic community that has the speech community.

    to

    Necessity: Each adopted definition is of a concept in the body of shared meanings that unites the semantic community that has the speech community.
