Good list. Thanks

"Bar code" should be banned:

Very good list. I never knew the proper terminology for the "awning".

Perhaps of use. (Taken from AAAC)

Butcher stripe is perhaps also worth mentioning. It's somewhere between awning and Bengal in terms of each stripe's thickness.

I assume then that the convention is that the darker stripe runs vertically and the lighter stripe runs horizontally.

I've heard the term "bordered stripe" for the lower one. Shadows only fall in one direction.

 

Bordered, whenever I've heard the term, almost always refers to something like Bengal width stripes with pinstripes edging each stripe, whereas shadows are the same width.

 

YMMV of course
