  • merchants - Buyers and sellers of commodities for profit.
  • sedan chairs - Portable chairs borne on two long poles; generally with elaborate upholstery and decoration. For conveyances for one person consisting generally of canvas or similar material stretched or laid across a frame for transporting the sick, wounded, or dead use "stretchers (conveyances)." For more elaborate conveyances boxlike in form and often enclosed by curtains and carried on poles by people or animals use "litters."
  • textiles - General term for carpets, fabrics, costume, or other works made of textile materials, which are natural or synthetic fibers created by weaving, felting, knotting, twining, or otherwise processing. For works of art or high craft that employ textile as a medium, prefer "textile art (visual works)."
  • towns - Distinctions among villages, towns, and cities are relative and vary according to their individual regional contexts. Towns generally are units of compact settlement larger than villages and less important and internally complex than cities in the region.
