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.

If this is just a guideline, it may not be significant, but if there is a clear and consistent practice, it may be useful for InLOC to represent that optional syntax.
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.

h2. InLOC examples

h2. InLOC treatment

InLOC will not specify structures specifically for text syntax.

However, any text syntax may be represented through [LOCassociation]s 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.

A [LOCdefinition] or [LOCstructure] may be the subject of any number of this kind of [category].
