The basis for business vocabulary is community. At the business level, communities of primary importance are enterprises for which business rules are being established and expressed. However, other communities - the industry in which an enterprise operates, partner enterprises, standards groups, regulatory authorities, etc. - also need to be recognized. An important aspect of community is that sub-communities within an enterprise may need its body of shared meanings (starting with fundamental concepts) to be expressed in different vocabularies, ranging from specialized jargon to different natural languages. In SBVR, such sub-communities are called “speech communities.”
