In cases where, in one language, a particular term is applicable to several professions, industries, etc. while the foreign equivalent varies according to the industry, etc. in which it is used, the particular branch of industry is noted in parenthesis in accordance with the ""Explanations of Abbreviations and Signs"" given at the beginning of the book. This reference has, however, been omitted where there can be no doubt as to the industry, etc. covered by the term. Expressions which are preferred, or are used almost exclusively, in the United States, are marked (A). I would like to sincerely.
