    in terms of

    Hi.
    "when in play we have to think in terms of plan practically always."


    What does "in terms of" mean here?

    Re: in terms of

    hooshdar, why do you ignore repeated requests for more context? People who come fresh to your threads have no idea that you are talking about chess. I am not going to answer any more of your questions unless you give more information. Others may; that's up to them.

    The context of having your threads closed/deleted if you won't cooperate.

    Yes! Always tell us where you found your sentence, who wrote it, when and why. Anything that can be useful. Understand that, as the person who doesn't know what something means, you cannot know what is necessary for the answerer to give an answer. Therefore, you should provide as much information as possible. The more information you give, the better chance you have that what you have given is enough. And if there is not enough information to give a good answer, no good answer will be given.

    I googled this in 30 seconds: in terms of - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
    It's a poorly written sentence.

    I also have readthe link you provided.But I feel that in terms of means "on the basis of" or "in the form of" not the one Cambridge dictionaryŽ provided in that link.

    Why not "in relation to"?
