Excellent utility for building a dictionary
Although I have never used the optional core glossary module, as a medical student using drupal to organise my vast array of notes, I have found this module to be ultimately effective for building a dictionary of terms I come across during my studies.
This module is ideal for the type of short-style content that one does not necessarily want to put on a page (or in a particular book). I am using it for building a glossary of medical terms that span multiple subjects (and thus books). For this, I find it perfect.
The input fields appear as follows:
Acronyms (or translation):
I would only suggest that perhaps there should be a further field under this for suggestions to related terms. I.e. See also (other related terms in glossary).
