Peculiar Signification of Terms






The terms of a writing are presumed to have been used in their
primary and general acceptation, but evidence is admissible to show
that they have been a local, technical, or otherwise peculiar
signification, and were so used and understood in the particular
instance, in which case the agreement must be construed accordingly.

When there is inconsistency between written words and printed words,
the former controls over the latter.(Rule 130, Sec.14)
