Tier 2: Strongly Consider Replacing

The Inclusive Naming Word Lists v1.0 is now available:

This page and its subpages are available as a single downloadable file in these formats: HTML | OpenDocument (.odt) | JSON | PDF formats.

(If you want the entire list of all the words in this release as a single file, use these links instead: HTML, OpenDocument (.odt), PDF, or JSON)

Terms in this list should be replaced whenever possible, barring major breaking changes. Terms included in this list have one or all of the following:

  • Are terms from Tier 3 that have undergone through external review by underrepresented minority groups and outside consultants
  • Terms which would otherwise be in Tier 1 but have dependencies on language set by standards bodies, or are deeply embedded in low-level systems and thus difficult to change
