I am a big fan of the term “abstract” because it simply means “something that is not a physical object.

I think of abstracts as pages in the APA. For this reason, I feel that the term has been overused, and that abstracts should be used much more frequently in the context of webpages. Of course, I am also aware that many people use abstracts to mean anything that isn’t a page, but to me, using the term as a standard for content is like using the term “white paper” as a standard for content.

The term abstract is used for a variety of reasons, most of which stem from a certain time in the 19th century when the American Philosophical Association didn’t care enough to stop using the term as a synonym for “white paper” and instead preferred to use the term “abstract.

The term abstract is a good one to use for the “non-page” (or more specifically non-webpages) parts of a webpage. We can use it to refer to the content of, for example, a webpage that is not a page, but is still a page in its own right.

The problem with using abstract as a page is that it is very ambiguous in its definition. It can mean something very specific, but it also could mean something a little more generic. For instance, the American Philosophical Association didnt care about the number to the left of the abstract in their official webpages, so even though they had this in the abstract they used the number 6 on their official page for the number of pages in the association.

The problem here is that “pages” is a very vague term, so it can mean what it says and nothing else. To help fix this, the APA decided to define the term more clearly. They said that the number of pages is a specific number, not any abstract number that we are using.

So, the way to fix this is to use the number on the actual page. So, if you were to look at the page that says “Pages” in the APA’s official page, that number would turn out to be 6.

This is great because it makes it much easier to understand what the APA is talking about.

Oh, and I’m not sure how you would use this term to mean the number of pages in the APA Official page. I think it would be easy to say “the number of pages in the APA official page”. But since it is a specific number, you would not use that term in that case either.

I think using the term “pages in the APA official page” is a good way to refer to the number of pages in the official APA page. It means that the APA page contains pages from the official APA. This is something that I have been talking about for years and years.

Wow! I can't believe we finally got to meet in person. You probably remember me from class or an event, and that's why this profile is so interesting - it traces my journey from student-athlete at the University of California Davis into a successful entrepreneur with multiple ventures under her belt by age 25
