Wiki on Linq:

CTS (Common Type System) CTS describes how types are declared, used and managed in the runtime and facilitates cross-language integration, type safety, and high performance code execution.

CLS (Common Language Specification) CLS is an agreement among language designers and class library designers to use a common subset of basic language features that all languages have to follow.

CLS is a subset of CTS

Access Specifiers specifies the level of visibility of the method or object (i.e., the extent to which it is accessible), where as Access Modifier specifies whether the method can be extended (i.e., can participate in Inheritance) or not.

The ECMA-334 C# Spec[^] uses the term in the following way:

17.2.3 Access modifiers
A class-member-declaration can have any one of the five possible kinds of declared accessibility (§10.5.1):
public, protected internal, protected, internal, or private. Except for the protected
internal combination, it is a compile-time error to specify more than one access modifier. When a classmember-
declaration does not include any access modifiers, private is assumed.

In the spec, there is no mentioning of access specifier.
