Subject: Definitions v. Glossary

A glossary is a list of definitions of specialized terms. The terms have
application to the document in which they appear. These words might have
other meanings in other contexts. I think your list, as described below,
is a glossary. Marilyn.

He said:
I have a list of terms that apply either to our applications or to
Windows terms that our users may have a limited understanding of. These
are appended to my help files. They started life as a list of
definitions, but it looks more like a glossary to me now.

The apps are medical transcription software and administrative system

Any input on what this should be called? I lean to Glossary. Unable to
find any specific definition of the difference, just have a gut
feeling. Could someone define (gloss) these?
