Report to the PAP on IALA Dictionary maintenance
[edit]

Summary[edit]

This report provides a summary of activity to update and maintain the IALA Dictionary over the year 2018.

BACKGROUND[edit]

The IALA Dictionary is a resource provided by IALA for Members and the general public to ensure knowledge and consistency of the meaning of terms used in IALA documents. Regular and on-going updating and maintenance of the Dictionary is therefore essential.

UPDATES TO THE DICTIONARY[edit]

Abbreviations[edit]

As abbreviations have been included in documents approved by the IALA Council, they have been added to the Dictionary.

Definitions[edit]

Any definitions contained in IALA documents approved by Council are automatically approved for inclusion in the Dictionary. New/amended definitions have been extracted by Committees from IALA documents under preparation or review and notified to the IALA Secretariat via the Dictionary Amendment Proposal template document.

26 definitions have been uploaded from approved IALA documents. The definitions are listed below.

Languages used for definitions[edit]

IALA policy is that IALA documentation should be provided in the three major languages English, French and Spanish. French translations of Dictionary terms have been provided for 5 definitions while 31 definitions have been provided in Spanish during 2018.
