    • 2012, Nick Thieberger, The Oxford Handbook of Linguistic Fieldwork (page 401)
      With a complex site, different site elements may not be terminologically distinguished, or else a generic term may be optionally added to the placename to distinguish a site element, such as a hill, well, or claypan at the location.
