Proposal: Write scope note for Exx Actor Appellation
http://cidoc.ics.forth.gr/crm_issues.html#is102


Folks,

This is very much a first draft -- I'm sure there will be some useful
comments about this one:


PROPOSED ACTOR SCOPE NOTE:

An Actor Appellation is any sort of name, number or code used to identify an
Actor. An Actor will typically have more than one Appellation, and
Appellations in turn may have alternative representations. 

The distinction between corporate and personal names, which is particularly
important in library applications, should be made by explicitly linking the
Actor Appellation to either a Person or Group/Legal Body entity. If this is
not possible, the distinction can be made through the use of the "has type"
mechanism.

Examples: "Johnny", "John Doe", "Doe, J.", "J.X.D.", "246-14-2304", "The
Third Man".


Cheers,

T.
