The Way Home
Here we offer definitions or rather, links to definitions of some of the words we use throughout The Zoo Fence. They are intended to help visitors to this site understand what we think we are saying. They are not exactly dictionary or encyclopedia definitions, although some of it will be drawn from those sources, but rather explanations of what we mean by certain words.
Thus, on this page, in alphabetical order, is a list of the words we have defined for that purpose. Clicking on any word in the list will jump you to our definition of it. (In a few cases, the link will take you to a site outside The Zoo Fence where we believe the term or subject is particularly well defined or clearly explained.)
To go directly to any of our definitions pages, please click on the link above that corresponds to the first letter of the word you are looking for.
Be alert that some words in Arabic, Hebrew, Sanskrit, and other languages may have various English or Anglicized spellings, like Zoroaster & Zarathustra.
