The article presents a response concerning the concept of the term "concurrent over and under treatment" in lexicography. It contends that the term is improper, as it does not mean that one is dealing with a few pages with mainly long articles alternating with a few pages containing mostly short articles. It points out that implemented chnages resulted in the term are problematic from both allocations not only moved further apart.
