Because of your second letter, I'm tempted to say no. But I'll let you have it. :good:
Fixed that, but an adjudicator isn't a réf, nor is 'that is' ié - :P

I didn't enter 'réf'. I entered 'ref'.

adjudicator

Similar:
arbitrator
arbiter
mediator
referee
referee's assistant

i.e. stands for id est or 'that is' -- and it's used to clarify a statement or word that came before it. E.g. means exempli gratia or 'for example. ' It's used to introduce examples and illustrate a statement. Both i.e. and e.g. are abbreviations for Latin expressions.

I know all that and see that you think I must be dense, but you've missed the point I was trying to make; never mind.
