stretch language
linguagem maleável / flexível


Explanation:
O verbo stretch quer dizer esticar. Neste caso, eu interpreto a frase como "linguagem malável (ou flexível)". Não é considerada nem "padrão" nem "alternativa", e precisa ser aprovada pela pessoa ou pelo departamento responsável.

maleável: Que é flexível, dobrável, elástico (fio maleável)

Example sentence(s):
  • Antes, a capacidade da obra cesarina de criar uma linguagem maleável cujos recursos visuais e sensoriais associados ao movimento criam estreita afinidade ...
  • Uma abordagem específica de cada sector exige uma linguagem flexível nesta matéria.
