The glossPartOfSpeech element identifies the part of speech for the preferred and alternate terms. Alternate terms must have the same part of speech as the preferred term, because all terms in the glossentry topic designate the same subject.

If validation is required for parts of speech, use a subject scheme to set up controlled values for the value attribute. Alternatively, processing rules can be used to validate the values. This avoids the need to hard code values in the XML grammar files, which would limit extension and would make values difficult to change for different languages.
