  • Summary:

    Title: SBVR needs a consistently applied policy for styling or not styling signifiers
    Source:

    Summary:
    There is some inconsistency in the SBVR specification regarding which signifiers are styled and which are not.
    A policy needs to be agreed and applied consistently through the SBVR specification.
    Resolution:
    1. Style each use of the signifier of a concept (e.g. ‘thing’, ‘meaning’) where that use has the specific meaning defined in its SBVR entry;
    2. If the signifier of a defined concept has an everyday English meaning that is different from its SBVR definition, don’t style uses of it where the everyday meaning is intended;
    3. Add a paragraph to the introduction explaining the basis for styling/not styling.
