a _Please Help the Glossary!

Suggested Terms (not Topics. Entries requiring more than a simple definition should be placed in the Collaborative Articles section.) Pictures are always helpful (be sure to credit the source). "See also this website for more information." is handy also. Make the definition your own; do not plagiarize. While quoting from wikipedia.com is frowned upon, we realize that sometimes it is the best or only source.

To define a term, just click the term in red below. (Note that the glossary is divided into four parts, which do not auto-sort. It's not uncommon for terms to end up in the wrong sub-section. If you notice this, please send a PM to a CBmod or Senior Team Member to have the term moved to its proper location.)

Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to add to this list also. Come across a term you think should be included? Just edit this page, and put the term inside {wiki}tags{/wiki}. Replace all braces {} with brackets [].
