For Your Research: 40 Different Types of Glossaries


I've heard some students ask if a glossary is the same as a dictionary. Growing up without the Internet, I learned that a glossary was a listing of terms at the end of book. Each one of my textbooks had a glossary, which made it easy to look up any words which I didn't understand. Most of today's textbooks have glossaries, and unlike dictionaries, which have the definitions to all words, the glossary is a vocabulary list from a specific topic or work. So, for example, the digital photography teacher would use a glossary with vocabulary related specifically to digital photography, and an elementary school teacher would have their students use a dictionary to look up their spelling words. This list will be placed under the Reference tab and be updated over time.
