Ebooks Glossary of Terms

Description: DictionaryNet is also about shedding light on glossaries that otherwise might not receive the attention they deserve simply by the fact that they have a low rank in search engines. This time I am even faster that Google, and I like that!  Thanks to a tweet by @ebookfriendly I happened to visit  their glossary, that hasn’t been cached by  Google so far.

Even though a small glossary with only 25 terms, for me it just came in on time. And that counts sometimes more than comprehensiveness.  I bought my first ebook via Amazon last week ( Brian Solis: The End of Business as Usual)  and at work I receive some five “e-books” a day from companies trying to get attention for their services trough inbound marketing. So reading through the glossary gave me a fast overlook of the ” most popular terms used to describe ebooks”.

The ebook glossary was compiled by Piotr Kowalczyk, “self-publisher, author of short stories for geeks and a big enthusiast of electronic books”.  I am positive that the glossaries will grow over time. Keep up the good work, Piotr!

Example Term: enhanced ebook

An electronic book with added audio, video and other elements, which let the user interact with the content. usually enhanced ebooks are sold as standalone book application.

THE Twitter Glossary

Description : The official Twitter glossary by the Twitter Help Center. A classic support glossary that contains jargon, lingo and vocabulary of frequently used terms related to Twitter features and aspects of their service. Clean and to the point, so don’t expect to find their any trendy words. Nicely done: Each definition holds a link to related articles in Twitters help center for further exploration of each term.

The Twitter glossary is a good example how a glossary can and should be used by companies that try to limit support requests. The glossary is understood as a suitable (and actually the second listed !) tool to empower Twitter users to find answers to their question independently.

Example Term:


A note displaying when a Tweet was posted to Twitter. Can be found in grey text directly below any Tweet. Is also a link to that Tweet’s own URL. Learn how to link directly to a Tweet.
