  1. wording

    An author's diction is strictly his choice and use of words, with no special reference to thought; expression regards the words simply as the vehicle of the thought. Phrase and phraseology apply to words or combinations of words which are somewhat technical; as, in legal phraseology; in military phrase. Diction is general; wording is limited; we speak of the diction of an author or of a work, the wording of a proposition, of a resolution, etc. Verbiage never bears this sense (see CIRCUMLOCUTION.) The language of a writer or speaker may be the national speech he employs; as, the English or French language; or the word may denote his use of that language; as, the author's language is well (or ill) chosen. Style includes diction, expression, rhetorical figures such as metaphor and simile, the effect of an author's prevailing tone of thought, of his personal traits — in short, all that makes up the clothing of thought in words; thus, we speak of a figurative style, a frigid or an argumentative style, etc., or of the style of Macaulay, Prescott, or others. An author's vocabulary is the range of words which he brings into his use. Compare LANGUAGE.

  1. Beatriz Champagne:

    While we stand by our key messages, it is helpful to know that the wording of parts of the policy brief can give rise to misunderstandings. To address this we have updated the document( specifically page 8) to more clearly articulate our conclusions and specifically cite the studies by which they have been reached, in brief, our position is that studies showing a significant cardioprotective effect of alcohol consumption have by-and-large been observational, inconsistent, funded by the alcohol industry, and/or not subject to randomized control. Furthermore, any potential cardioprotective effect is negated by the well-documented risks and harms, rendering our judgment that no amount of consumption can be considered good for heart health.

  2. David Turnbull:

    It was signed, but I'm telling you here and now that the wording of that was planned to be altered prior to these accidents I might add.

  3. Joey Hensley:

    It had to pass two general assemblies, and now it's gotta be on the ballot and people don't really understand what they're talking about, it's been in our constitution since 1870, and it wasn't talking about slavery like people think about slavery. It was the wording. They were talking about prisoners and we still, you know, confine prisoners. It's not slavery, but it is confining prisoners and that's what it was talking about.

  4. Corrections Commissioner Rodney Ballard:

    Once I learned of the policy and its antiquated wording, I took steps to have it corrected, this is how we will address any similar issue facing The Kentucky Department of Corrections.

  5. Jonathan Parry:

    The wording used in judgments is' a realistic prospect' that something might happen, the judge did not assign a percentage, but he made it clear that something doesn't have to be' more likely than not'.
