The examples of technicalities may be found in different areas of knowledge, as are words employed to identify a concept, object or function within a very specific discipline or science.
In today’s world there are many people dedicated exclusively to certain and certain activities, which vary from a decoration for meals at a party, to a microsurgery to operate the eyesight.
These people, and others who are related to them, provide technological tools to improve the efficiency and quality of their work, as well as often create terms that only they use clearly, to refer to concepts of their daily activity.
These terms are often new words, formed by combinations of others, initials of words that have some special meaning, or words of common use but that in the specific subject in question, have a different meaning.
These are the so-called technicalities, which are very commonly used in scientific texts or in customer-supplier relationships for these activities.
Their knowledge is not only important but necessary, especially for those interested in specialized reading or those who wish to acquire or market the professional services of those who use them, and thus be able to get the most out of them.
