Occasionally a usage label has been added in addition to the word form categories:
- terms considered obsolete or deprecated have been marked as deprecated term. Deprecated terms may still be in current use.
- archaic indicates a word is unambiguously obsolete and has not been in current use for several decades. To simplify searching, archaic words should be marked both with archaic and deprecated.
- colloquial indicates words used in colloquial language, but which should be avoided in scientific language.
- other potential usage labels are offensive or taboo – unlikely to be used here ...
By clicking on any of the links above, you will see a list of all pages containing a link to a given category. With few exceptions (e. g. the links from this page), these links indicate that a glossary entry belongs to that category.
Note: Some other header information (synonym, opposite, variant spelling) was considered not helpful to treat as a category.
