atw: Re: Appendixes vs annexes [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Yes, according to Fowler's Modern English Usage, 'annex' is the verb and 
'annexe' is the noun, except in America where 'annex' can also be a noun. 
However, it seems that that American usage is now spreading - and has 
certainly reached the Department of Defence!
The reference to material that's bundled with a document but also serves 
as a document in its own right is one I'd heard of, too. The consensus 
here seems to be that that's what should be called an 'annex'. However, my 
colleague here just found a reference that seems to suggest exactly the 
opposite - that that should be called an appendix and the supplementary 
material that amplifies or gives further detail should be called an annex! 


My preference is to avoid 'annex' altogether.  If we need to invoke Hitler 
to do so - well so be it!

I agree with Kath and Helen too, but would also like to point out that
'annex' is what Germany did to Austria in 1938, and has no place in
civilised documentation.

I agree with Kath. That is exactly my understanding too.

Hi Howard,
we use Appendix for additional information or diagrams that would, if
included in the body of the document, interrupt the flow of the
document's overall structure; i.e. it is a part of the document.
An Annex is an external document (with its own title and document id)
that may be bundled with the main document, but is not part of it.=3D20
That is my take on the two terms.
cheers
Kath
