What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

Talking Paper - What is this?

Hello everyone,
could anyone please help me explaining what a "Talking Paper" is? I've searched everywhere on the internet and can't find any translation or even the meaning of it in English. I'm translating a text about ship consctruction from English to Portuguese. Here is the sentence:
"The selected concept design then is used as a talking paper for obtaining approximate construction costs(...)"

Thanks in advance!

    Hi Mscharf
    I think it means a paper that we have to use as reference to make our cost calculation.

    @mscharf a talking paper is a document that is for discussion (talking= discussion) and (paper = document). It can be about any subject.
