Example
A computational device that infers structure
from grammatical strings of words is known as a <term>parser</term>, and much of the history
of NLP over the last 20 years has been occupied with the design of parsers.
Example
We may define <term xml:id="TDPV1rend="sc">discoursal point of view</term> as
<gloss target="#TDPV1">the relationship, expressed
through discourse structure, between the implied author or some other addresser, and the
fiction.</gloss>
Example
We may define <term ref="#TDPV2rend="sc">discoursal point of view</term> as
<gloss xml:id="TDPV2">the relationship, expressed
through discourse structure, between the implied author or some other addresser, and the
fiction.</gloss>
Example
We discuss Leech's concept of <term ref="myGlossary.xml#TDPV2rend="sc">discoursal point of view</term> below.
Note

When this element appears within an index element, it is understood to supply the form under which an index entry is to be made for that location. Elsewhere, it is understood simply to indicate that its content is to be regarded as a technical or specialised term. It may be associated with a gloss element by means of its ref attribute; alternatively a gloss element may point to a term element by means of its target attribute.

In formal terminological work, there is frequently discussion over whether terms must be atomic or may include multi-word lexical items, symbolic designations, or phraseological units. The term element may be used to mark any of these. No position is taken on the philosophical issue of what a term can be; the looser definition simply allows the term element to be used by practitioners of any persuasion.

As with other members of the att.canonical class, instances of this element occuring in a text may be associated with a canonical definition, either by means of a URI (using the ref attribute), or by means of some system-specific code value (using the key attribute). Because the mutually exclusive target and cRef attributes overlap with the function of the ref attribute, they are deprecated and may be removed at a subsequent release.
