I am a software engineer and I struggle with the variable names, regarding this scope, what would be the best suited term for a counter.
For example if I want to count parts, would "Parts Counted" a better name than "Number Of Parts", thanks in advance, any advice would be very appreciated.
The suggestion from Juan José Melero Gómez is very interesting, i will put it here in order to use it as added in info:
in order to refer to a certain quantity of elements, in natural language we use "number of elements", "amount of elements" or "quantity of elements". However, in the IT field, where variable names need to be really shortened concatenated versions of the natural language, what would be a "correct" way to shorten these expressions? "elementCount" is something we see often, but as non-native speakers, we cannot tell if it's "correct" or whether we may prefer to use "elementAmount" or "elementQuantity" instead because of nuances
