Unfortunately, the email addresses below are not clickable. Further, you cannot copy/paste them into your email program. You must manually re-type them. The email addresses are graphic *.png images created by Masker. I inconvenience you this way to discourage spammers from harvesting email addresses from the website with automated website spidering.

I could not possibly have written this glossary without a lot of help from many BIXen and Internet denizens, expectially:
