Terminology is the study of terms and their use. Terms are words and compound words that in specific contexts are given specific meanings, meanings that may deviate from the meaning the same words have in other contexts and in everyday language. The discipline Terminology studies among other things how such terms of art come to be and their interrelationships within a culture. Terminology differs from lexicography in studying concepts, conceptual systems, and their labels (terms), whereas lexicography study words and their meanings.

To create a new page for a specific term simply type the term into the search box on the left toolbar and click the "Go" button. If no page for your term exists you can then create the page by clicking on the red link. Be sure to add the Terminology category tag at the bottom of each new term page or it will not show up in this list.
