Serif terminology

Hello!

Serif fonts often have lighter strokes on one side, I recall hearing a specific term for this phenomena a while ago but I can't remember what it was. Can anyone unravel this mystery for me?

Best regards,
Edvard

You're looking for "Hairline". The stroke that is more thick or is by itself is called a "Stem".

Are you talking about "stroke contrast"?
