Abstract:

This chapter presents a review of the rapidly growing vocabulary of data base system technology, along with its conflicts and ambiguities. The solutions offered address some of the problems encountered in communication concepts and ideas in this field. This effort is intended to be a first step toward the development of a more comprehensive, standard set of terms that can be used throughout the industry. More work is needed to identify and resolve the differences in interpretation between the many terms used in data administration, data base development, data base administration, data base research, and marketing as they occur in industry, government, and academia.
