      // Syntax elements to skip. Overrides the default
      "skip": ["Blockquote"],
      // List of terms
      "terms": [
        // Exact spelling including the case
        "JavaScript",
        "ESLint",
        "Sass",
        "Less",
        "npm",
        // RegExp (case-insensitive) → replacement
        ["front[- ]end(\\w*)", "frontend$1"],
        ["back[- ]end(\\w*)", "backend$1"],
        ["web[- ]?site(s?)", "site$1"],

        ["(\\w+[^.?!]\\)? )internet", "$internet"]
      ],
      // OR load terms from a file
      "terms": "~/terms.json",
      // OR load terms from npm
      "terms": "@johnsmith/terms"
    }
