I have a new tutoring update in the making right now.
I realised that there isn’t a comprehensive glossary that combines all the academic subject vocabulary for English language and English literature out there (including storytelling, narratology, rhetoric, theatre, linguistics, etc). So, I’m setting out to make one!
This is a much more manageable project than making a book or something. It works much better with my neurodivergent brain, because I don’t need to wait until I finish everything to release it like I did with the other projects I wanted to create (e.g. a textbook on worldbuilding).
It matches the course structure I’m going for, too, where I can keep adding new stuff over time.
It’s quite short right now, but let me know if there are any words that you’d like me to explain. It’s locked behind a paywall because I’m trying to make this website thing work. However, let me share some screenshots!
This is what the archive page looks like.
A single entry in the glossary.
This is what a tooltip looks like when you hover over it.
I’ve got over 1800 words that I can add to this over time. It’s a good thing I abandoned writing this out as a book! The last time I added to my book form, there were less than 500 words on the list. Now there are way too many! I’d just have never published and gotten really depressed.
Let me know if you have any feedback, or if you’d like access!
