Would it be more correct to say "... for which each object *of* the class has a separate copy"?

Not a paradigm[edit]

I think the standard way to say this is "non-static member variable" but perhaps there is some subtle technical difference.66.112.225.87 (talk) 19:26, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Override has special meaning.[edit]

At: However the current location referenced in one object may be San Francisco, USA, and you would want to override the default value to currLatitude = 37.7750, but another object may reference La Paz, Bolivia and you would instead want currLatitude = 16.4942. the term 'override' should not be used, as this has a special meaning in a number of OOP languages. It is also more technical than is required. 'change' is adequate.
