Submit a Term or Definition
This glossary is indexed by term. Please submit one term at a time.

If you want to add to an existing or a recently submitted term (ie. you want to submit multiple discrete definitions), please use the same term.

This is an open collaboration project, and I intend to respect your anonymity as much as possible, while keeping this process as transparent as I can. This form won't be recording emails (as far as I know), and once you've submitted a term you will be provided a link to the spreadsheet I'm using to record responses and prepare them for the glossary. You may also add, edit, and comment there if you wish.

For other matters, please contact me via twitter (@jbtenmatay), discord (whimsee#0759) or email (
