A list of set preferences on specific terms and phrases.
Style terms are a collection of preferred spellings and formats of terms and phrases that appear commonly throughout a project. The goal of using a style terms list is to ensure consistency in terms that could possibly carry alternative correct spellings, formats, or meanings. For instance, a project may see several different ways of capturing the preferred term “Heavy Duty” like “Heavy duty”, “Heavy-Duty”, “Heavy-duty”, “HD”, “H-D”; the style terms list would dictate “Heavy Duty” be used in place of any of the latter alternative terms.
