Thanks. I mean specialized lexicons (as opposed to general dictionaries),
rather than brief ones -- and I agree with you about Black's, which I put
at the top of my own list.

But now I am wondering -- is there unanimity among us re the meaning of
hthe term "glossary." (I raised this question once before; there were very
few responses.)

DSNA members, what say you?
