Term Section


A sub-section of a language section that contains a single term used to designate the concept that is the subject of the terminological entry, as well as any other information (e.g., definitions, contexts, etc), associated with that term.

A language section in a terminological entry can contain one or many term sections. Term sections may be in the form of so-called tigs (terminology information groups) or ntigs (nested terminology information groups. Tigs are very simple in structure. All items listed in a tig refer directly to the term contained in the tig. Ntigs include sub-groups that enable the user to include subsidiary information referring to other elements in the entry, such as the source of a definition, or a responsibility code for a subset of the ntig.
