Stateline Faults: Making a Case for Standardized Terminology in Lithic Studies from an Ozarks-Wide Perspective

However, standardized terminology reduces potential confusion. A few suggestions are offered to help standardize discrepancies that are associated with certain chipped-stone raw materials in the southwestern Ozarks.
