/rɪˈleɪtɪd tɜrm/

Definition

A word or phrase which is associated with the one that is preferred but which has a slightly different meaning.

When creating taxonomies, word choice is an important tool for tasks like category labeling, as the wrong label can cause confusion, misclassification, or multiclassing. For example, to help put forks, knives, and spoons in one category, [Eating Utensils] might be the preferred term to [Silverware] as all forks belong in the category and silver serving ladles do not. However, the term silverware may often appear within the data, often relating to Eating Utensils.
