I found this definition on the NFPA Web Site:

Neutral Conductor.

The grounded current-carrying conductor of all electrical circuits.

That is actually not a bad definition.
All systems that have a neutral conductor are required to be grounded, and the neutral conductor is the conductor of the system that is required to be grounded.

Is not the grounded conductor of a 3Ø 3W corner grounded system a current carrying conductor, but is not the neutral conductor?
