Glossary explanation

A glossary is a list of words with enclosed explanations or translations. The Latin word glossarium refers to the object as a “book”, which explains (old) or foreign words.

Glossaries were created in Antiquity and Middle Ages by glossographers as collections of explanatory words (archaisms, dialect words, foreign words, see gloss) for the grammar study and as an aid for the explanation of texts (especially Homer’s and the Bible). Since the late Middle Ages, bilingual, Greek-Latin and Latin-Greek glossaries have been used to mediate the foreign language, and in the Latin Middle Ages they became the starting point for the creation of Latin-vernacular glossaries (Abrogans, Affatim Glossary).

As a lexicographical genre, the one-bilingual and bilingual glossaries form a precursor to the complete collection of a vocabulary, from which, as early as the eighteenth century, the basic encyclopaedia of the Vulgar and Mittellinein of Charles Du Cange as a glossarium ad scriptores mediae et infimae Latinitatis (1st edition, Paris, 1678). The glossaries of antiquity and late antiquity have often already dealt with the method of etymology which attempts to derive a word or its constituent parts from similar sounding words in order to discover not only the origin of the word, but also the essential characteristics of the thing. In addition to primary linguistic, they often also provided a high proportion of factual explanations that made them a precursor to the encyclopedias. Thus, the encyclopedia of the Middle Ages, the etymologiae of Isidore of Seville, is compiled, among other things, from late-classical glossaries.

A glossary is a list of words with linguistic explanations that reveal the vocabulary of a edited text and is usually printed in the appendix to this text. A technical or technical glossary lists the terminology of a technical language or technical subject with conceptual and factual definitions which are intended to ensure the correct use of these technical terms and their clear understanding.
