Glossary of business terms
Adjective (adj) Headwords for adjectives followed by information in square brackets [only before a noun] and [not before a noun] show any restrictions on where they can be used. Noun (n) The codes [C] and [U] show whether a noun, or a particular sense of a noun, is countable (an agenda, two agendas) or uncountable (absenteeism, advertising). Verbs (v) The forms ofirregular verbs are given after the headword. The codes [I] (intransitive) and [T] (transitive) show whether a verb, or a particular sense of a verb, has or does not have an object. Phrasal verbs (phr v) are shown after the verb they are related to. Some entries show information on words that are related to the headword. Adverbs (adv) are often shown in this way after adjectives. Region labels Thecodes AmE and BrE show whether a word or sense of a word is used only in American English or British English.
