*A* reference is not sufficient. It has to be a reference which all other 
references agree with.

I'll be kind, and lower the requirement to one where *the majority* of other 
references agree. The OP still won't find one :-)

Or perhaps that should be a sad face smiley :-( How much time we would all 
save if academics and language designers would only stick to a single 
consistent terminology across all languages.
