Term <--proposed word(s)(heading3)

Definition: <up to one contiguous paragraph definition of the word. > [<source of the definition>,<gang member>]


1. if possible, examples of the term can be very helpful

Comment: <a place where any of us can jump in and make comments on the term and/or definition> [<gang member>]


  • Terms defined in the Lexicon page itself are italicized on that page.
  • Each term has exactly one definition. If folks would like to propose another definition for the same term/word, then they should add "-2" or "-3" etc. to the term word itself to distinguish their use of the term from others. In the long run we'll eliminate all of these -2, -3 alternative definitions.
