The volume of published research was increasing. It was becoming evident that a lack of knowledge of the terminology used in different countries was an increasing obstacle to understanding what was being published.
Choay and Merlin Everyone seemed to be discussing something different and there was very little common ground or methodological base, quite apart from language problems.
This, however, is one of the strengths of morphology. Hence we compiled a basic glossary of technical terms common principally in English-language studies.
We took as a basis M. We felt it necessary, rather as the Oxford English Dictionary does, to give precise citations and indeed quotations from works which have used particular terms in particular ways, to establish context and provenance for usage.
It has been found particularly useful for students and those new to the subject - but they and all other users should be aware of its limitations! Any comments, suggestions, new terms and definitions are very welcome please e-mail peter.

In Britain, the rise in numbers and menbership of amenity groups follows the formation of the Civic Trust in ; their significance in terms of public consultation in the planning process follows the Skeffington Report on Public participation in planning Main characteristic is the use of several textures, contrasting brickwork with weatherboarding, tile-hanging, and rendering; and often the use of pantiles rather than plain tiles Edwards,p.

For some planning applications, for example outline applications and applications for material change of use, an architectural drawing is not required and a block plan alone suffices.Archeology. The International History Project.
