A glossary is an alphabetical list of terms in a particular domain of knowledge with the definitions for those terms. It's purpose is to document the key words and phrases which are regularly contained in a body of content.
Terminology plays a critical role in the understanding of specialized or technical contexts. Understanding the specific terminological meaning of the technical contexts in process control and industrial systems assists in defining and communicating the main message of a document, which in turn allows stakeholders the ability to transmit the content much more effectively.
