Hi Rob,

a glossary would be great Smile

Things like occams razor, cults, homeopathy etc.

Either a description to it or a link to a relevant description?

Cheers,

Den.

That's a good idea. If you've got any other lexicon that needs an explanation let me know.

Will do... Smile

Sorry lexicon is:
1. A dictionary.
2. A stock of terms used in a particular profession, subject, or style; a vocabulary: the lexicon of surrealist art.
3. Linguistics The morphemes of a language considered as a group.
