Title
Terms, symbols, and ordinals : a taxonomy of designators
Source

Abstract
This article presents a new taxonomy of designators (a.k.a. designations), covering terms, symbols and ordinals. Although ordinals are widely used, they have not been conceptualized in terminology literature as designators per se. Each category is broken down according to the basiv form of the designator. Term types are monomilas, polynomilas, and initialisms. Symbol types are alphabetic and graphic. And ordinal types are alphabetic and numeric. Combinations (hybrids) of these types are also discussed. The proposed terms and concepts are contrasted with those in ISO 1087 (Terminology: Vocabulary, 1990) and approximately 48 terms are defined
