SBVR14 — new SBVR issue: Add key words to A.2.1.3 Modal Operations

  • Key: SBVR14-96
  • Legacy Issue Number: 19892
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Trisotech ( Ms. Keri Anderson Healy)
  • Summary:

    As part of the work on 19840 it was discovered that ’can’ (a word paralleling ’may' but missing from the Annex A key word list) and ’need not’ (also missing) were being used in several places throughout the SBVR document to specify an intended modality. In some cases the key word was used to express the wrong modality. To make the usage clear (and formally styled) they need to be added to the lists in Annex A (A.2.1.3).

  • Disposition: Resolved — SBVR 1.4b2
  • Disposition Summary:

    These are the charts from the July discussion. They illustrate the missing coverage of the two alternative keywords: can (for alethic possibility) & need not (for deontic non-obligation).

    The key words 'can' and 'need not' should be added to the 2nd key word list in Annex A.2.1.3.
