Abstract:

The purpose of the standard is to present a selected body of terms relevant to the field of information processing, and to establish the corresponding meanings for these terms. The standard is a body of terms whose individual meanings are different in the information processing field from their meanings in the general technical vocabulary. The standard also includes the specifications for the body of this vocabulary, and the rules for preparing the entries for this vocabulary. It does not include those terms whose meanings are commonplace, the meanings of terms found in our everyday nontechnical vocabulary, nor the many special meanings that are arbitrarily assigned.
