A single text field may have mandatory or optional syntactical structure, which the InLOC model may want to represent. A common example is that short descriptions should start with action verbs.
This feature is significant for InLOC if (and only if)
- the syntactical structure is mandatory, or
- there is a clear and consistent practice, even if not clearly mandatory.
In these cases we wish to record the syntax for consideration in InLOC.
InLOC will not specify structures specifically for text syntax.
However, any text syntax may be represented through LOCassociations of type category. The LOCassociation scheme should point to a taxonomy of terms (e.g. action verbs) and the LOCassociation object should point to one specific term within that scheme.
