A glossary is a comprehensive list of terms and their meanings, typically found at the end of a book, document, or report. It is an alphabetically arranged list of words that are specific to a certain subject, field or area of study. Glossaries include definitions, explanations and translations of terms, acronyms and abbreviations used in the document. They are used in fields such as law, science, medicine and technology to clarify complex or technical language, and also in educational materials to assist students in understanding the subject matter. Glossaries are an essential tool to easily navigate and comprehend the information presented in a document.
