[Latin: simple]

adj. Indicating that a word or phrase in a document is used absolutely, unconditionally, and free from any shades of meaning given to it by surrounding words or phrases. For example, if the word “yard” is found in a document, it means that the word is used in its most natural sense. Thus it is not a “stockyard”, which is a particular type of yard.

Subjects: Law.
