The term Local Perspective is used by teachers, editors, writers, and critics to refer to the practice of talking about a document or revising a document at the linguistic, sentence-level, or semantic perspective.
Teachers, writers, editors may use the term Sentence level or Linguistic Level rather than Local Perspective.
When editors, bosses, or instructors critique a text from the local perspective, they are examining it sentence-by-sentence, looking for stylistic infelicities, i.e., errors of usage, convention.
The practice of engaging in a local perspective is an act of editing rather than an act of revision.
