quick question about how to word something


Hi everyone, I am working away on my Findings chapters (still!) and I want to put a little bit at the beginning
about what I am calling the people in my study and why. For example I don't want to talk about "there were 10 patients in the room" but instead will use another term. I am sure I have seen this referred to before in studies, but can't find any examples at the moment. I was going to head it something like "a note on terminology", or " a note on language used", can anyone think of a good way of putting it. Many thanks

'A note on terminology' sounds good to me!

'The problem of nomenclature'? or 'questions of nomenclature: an assessment' if you intend a fuller discussion than, "btw I am going to call those patients 'service clients'" ;-)
