In a table of terms and definitions that I inherited, alternate terms are explained as âaka<alternate-terms>â. Any thoughts on whether people will understand this?

"AKA" commonly means, "Also Known As." You will see it often in criminal records, usually as, "aka," to identify aliases used by people. Variants of the acronym are A.K.A., AKA, a.k.a., aka, and a/k/a.
