<!-- In a general sense, a glossary contains explanations of [[concept]]s relevant to a certain field of study or action. In this sense, the term is related to the notion of [[ontology]]. Automatic methods have been also provided that transform a glossary into an ontology<ref>R. Navigli, P. Velardi.

<!-- A '''core glossary''' is a simple glossary or [[defining dictionary]] which enables definition of other concepts, especially for newcomers to a language or field of study. It contains a small working vocabulary and definitions for important or frequently encountered concepts, usually including idioms or metaphors useful in a culture.
In computer science, a core glossary is a prerequisite to a [[core ontology]]. An example of this is seen in [[Suggested Upper Merged Ontology|SUMO]]. -->
