Subject: framing and nesting
I have had the opportunity recently to participate in an exchange
regarding the development of a content model. The exchange occurred in a
language other than English. I found myself reaching for a term that
roughly translates back into English as "framing" while I was trying to
explain the concept of "nesting" elements.
I now wonder if you or others might care to comment on the shift in
metaphor or contribute other cross-linguistic examples of such shifts.
There is an other term that has intrigued me: "looping".
