I tried to google for this term earlier, and need to rethink how to approach the search, at one time I knew what the word was, but now that I would like to rememer what it is...it's gone, early stages of CRS.

If one of you know what this word is, or how to successfully google it, please let me know. It isn't of any great importence, it just making me crazy not being able to remember it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Perhaps you're seeking "Academic Core" vocabularies. Or to expand on Koan's word "Idiomatic Phrases"

Hope your sanity heals. :thumbsup: Drink some coffee,they say it's good for your memory.

Could the word "vernacular", be what you are looking for?

Nah, Wu Wei is right, it's jargon. At least it is in the vernacular. :thumbsup:

Vernacular was the word I was looking for. I'm with you Scarlett. But I fear the smart money is on that Wu Wei will never tell.

Taxonomies as in controlled vocabularies ?

(But that could actually be Folksonomy)

You can do reverse lookups for phone numbers of addresses. I wonder if you can do a reverse lookup for a definition of a word???

That refers to a classification of organisms. There have been no winners, or whiners yet.

After looking off and on all afternoon, and not finding any results, I would start to question the existence of this word, except that I remember it was introduced to me in one of my college classes. Besides, if you can describe it, there must be a word for it.
