Section 45.3

More and Less: The Mark "x" is on the heavier thing which obviously weighs more than the small thing. Less would have, correspondingly, the mark on the smaller thing.

An upside down rectangle is always a document especially if it has inside the picto for word, But if we have a finger pointing at the word, it means the text, not the document.

Latest and Last: Both words have the same picto as it happens in latin languages, its meaning depending on the context. In our picto, you will see three men walking with the mark "x" on the last one.

We have here a picto which as a verb means to increase (in number). But here, as it does not have the sign that goes with the verbs, we must assume it is a noun. Therefore, it will mean Increase as a noun.

To order, To instruct: A man holding high a baton or staff gives the impression of giving an order. We can also have for instructions (man on a stand instructing people).

Their: we have the pictos: He His and logically, its plural
Their must be . For see section 39.

Staff: What we can see here is someone working at his desk. The little man at his right can be understood by looking at section 40 of this introduction and it means the man who does what is indicated in the picto. Therefore we can read this picto as people working in an office as the picto is in plural. It may not be a good picto. We'll find a more proper one for staff sometime later.

To avoid unnecessary repetitions we do not always explain here the pictos which have
already been explained in our pages of this Introduction Guide, sections 1 to 43.

We hope the reader will condescend with our insistence when we say again that a pictogram is good if its meaning can be picted -and remembered easily, other considerations being irrelevant.
