Sometimes we use terms with which you may be unfamiliar. This page is where some of those terms will be listed for your convenience (and ours, so we don’t have to keep on looking up the links!). As links are added, we will keep them alphabetical.
We generally won’t be including acronyms here unless there is some ambiguity between how we use them and how they may be mostly used elsewhere. Check the Acronym Finder as a general acronym reference.
