(chess) the standard method of denoting the squares on the chessboard, by allotting a letter, a, b, c, up to h, to each of the files running up the board from white’s side, starting from the left, and a number to each of the ranks across the board, starting with white’s first rank
algebraic notation was not sufficiently developed to enable the argument to be condensed into a form easily surveyed.
