    1. Scope

    1.1 This standard is the compilation of all terminology developed by Committee D-13 on Textiles.

    1.1.1 This terminology, consists mostly of definitions, which are specific to the textile industry. Meanings of the same terms used outside the textile industry can be found in other compilations or in dictionaries of general usage.

    1.1.2 The specific D13 subcommittee which has jurisdictional responsibility for every item is the first attribution noted after the definition. The standards in which the terms and definitions appear are listed by number after the jurisdiction for the term. The wording of an entry cannot be changed without the approval of the subcommittee which has jurisdiction and subcommittee D13.92 on Terminology. See , , .

    1.2 In addition to being a specialized dictionary, Terminology D 123 is also a tool for managing the committee's terminology. This includes finding, eliminating, and preventing redundancies, that is, where two or more terms relating the same concept are defined in different words. Redundancies can also occur when one definition is used for two or more terms.

    1.3 While the review for clarity and form are the responsibility of the terminology subcommittee, the concept of managing terminology is the broad responsibility of every writer of standards, specifically the task group leader and subcommittee chairman.

    1.4 Subsequent to a listing of specific subcommittee compilations, this standard is comprised of the following sections that are listed in the order in which they appear.

    1.4.1 Alphabetical listing of terms and respective definitions.

    1.4.2 Ready reference guide.

    1.4.3 Generic names and definitions of manufactured fibers.

    1.4.4 Classification of manufactured and natural fibers.

    1.4.5 Terms relating to the hand of fabrics.

    1.4.6 Terminology revision procedures.

    1.4.7 Industry accepted synonyms.

    1.4.8 Other sources of textile terminology.
