AFEMS Glossary

"The Glossary presented in this part of the website has been compiled by AFEMS’s Technical Committee on the base of its practical experience and intends to provide an operative support to the Member of the Association dealing with the proper definition of technical words in the most common EU languages.
It is not a comprehensive instrument, because it doesn’t cover the full range of terms used in our industry and the term’s definitions could be subject in the time to further change and refinement. The Glossary doesn’t intend to provide any legal definition of the terms included."

Star Trek Spectral Classification

"Stars can generally be classified by their color. A purple star is always Class O, a yellow star is always Class G. However, there can be vast differences within each class. Most Class M stars are tiny and don't emit much light... however, many K- and G-type stars can evolve into red giants. That makes them Class M, but they are NOTHING like the tiny stars that make up the vast majority of Class M stars. Since most stars spend most of their lives on the Main Sequence, the descriptions on this page can be applied to the majority of stars.

Star Trek Nebula Classification

"A nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, gas, and plasma, where star formation usually occurs. In the year 2400, the Federation introduced a new system to classify nebulae. The new system first assigns the nebula a letter designation based upon its general composition. If the nebula has any unusual quirks, it is assigned an additional number designation. For example, a Class F2 Nebula is a Dark Nebula that contains disruptive electromagnetic radiation."

Star Trek Planetary Classification

"A planet is a celestial body in orbit around a star or stellar remnants, that has sufficient mass for self-gravity and is nearly spherical in shape. A planet must not share its orbital region with other bodies of significant size (except for its own satellites), and must be below the threshold for thermonuclear fusion of
deuterium. If a celestial body meets those requirements, it is considered a planet; at that point, the planet is further classified by its atmosphere and surface conditions into one of twenty-two categories."

Glosario da Arte Contemporánea

"Este glosario naceu da necesidade de ampliar os repertorios terminográficos sobre arte contemporánea que incluísen o galego como lingua de traballo. Actualmente, a arte está a adquirir un gran pulo en Galicia, principalmente grazas á actividade de novos museos, galerías e salas de exposicións que amosan o traballo dos artistas máis novos ou innovadores do panorama internacional.

"This glossary was born of the need to expand the repertoires terminographic about contemporary art that included the galician as a working language. Today, art is to acquire a big push in India, mainly thanks to the activity of new museums, galleries and exhibition halls that show the work of younger artists or innovative on the international scene.

Pokémon Category

"In a Pokémon's Pokédex information, the category (...) (Japanese: 分類 classification) is a name which identifies the Pokémon based on one of its defining biological characteristics. Most often, the defining traits are part of the Pokémon’s physiology, special abilities, or behavior. It was previously also known as species. (...) Because of how brief and uninformative the description of a Pokémon often is in its category, and how little the category relates to other data, it is not often regarded as an important piece of information about a Pokémon.

Textile Museum Thesaurus

"The Textile Museum Thesaurus is a data management tool for cataloging and searching for textiles in The Textile Museum’s collection in its electronic database. The Thesaurus functions both as a controlled vocabulary for cataloging our collections and as an electronic querying aid structured to permit the highest level of success in retrieving the appropriate objects during searches.
