In OpenCL there is such a thing as "work item" that is some sort of a thread executing a portion of work shared among multiple threads (that form work groups altogether).
So private/local to work item/group refers to a region of memory that is either accessible by one thread or a group of threads respectively.
Does it clarify a bit what I am trying to say?
