Most of the body of a patent is written in plain English. The exception is the claims section, which is the section of primary legal importance. The claims determine what aspects of the invention are protected by the patent. Attorneys write claims in claim language, a special style of writing. Claims are difficult to read when you are new to the patenting process and don't understand the basic structure and semantics of claim language. In this paper, the author explains the basic vocabulary and structure of a claim to demystify claim language.
