comment What does the term “nonrecourse deduction” mean?
That's a lot more clear and understandable than other sources I've found discussing non-recourse loans etc., thanks!

comment What does the term “nonrecourse deduction” mean?
@bib Fair enough, however there is a legal tag which appears to provide an umbrella for questions of this nature. I have added that tag to the question. If this question should be deleted (or rather, deleted again, I already deleted it once and then undeleted it when I saw the legal tag) that is fine.

Changed tags to specify "legal" as a tag, instead of terminology

comment Would “pentaminutely” reflect an event that occurs every five minutes?
@FumbleFingers I would agree that minutely intervals would be incorrect in its usage. It is redundant. In this case I think you're right five minute intervals would be more correct. However, to describe a passage of time with a singularly descriptive word, I think Jon Hanna's answer is the correct one--particularly for this denomination of time. I appreciate your insight.

@FumbleFingers I'm not sure what your objection to minutely is. It's an old, probably archaic, word but that doesn't make it any less legitimate.

@KenAspeslagh I was actually going to address this point in my above edit but omitted it. The desire is to have a name that describes what the object is doing or its purpose (thus, achieving clarity) even if the term may be conceived as arcane.

Without getting into too much of the implementation details, the object itself is an implementation on top of another, abstracted, object that allows for variance in time. The only way we would go is down, and then it would be per minute which is probably too minute (heh...) for the application. Thanks for the insight though!

Clarification of the usage of the single word request.

Thanks Andrew; normally I would agree, but I'm naming domain objects and want to be as concise as possible with the names... admittedly quinqueminutal isn't much more concise than the phrase! :)
