A dictionary, sometimes referred to as a wordbook, is a collection of words in one or more specialized languages, often organized alphabetically (or by radicals and strokes for conceptual languages), including definitions, usages, etymologies, pronunciation, translations, Etc. A book of words in a language, known as a dictionary, with its equivalent in another language. It is a lexicographical context that shows the interrelationships between the data.

A wide distinction is made between general and specific dictionaries. Specific dictionaries include words from specialist fields rather than the full range of words in a language. Lexical items describing concepts in specific fields are usually called words rather than words, though there is no agreement as to whether terminology and terminology are two separate field studies. In theory, generic dictionaries are supposed to be seismological, a mapping term for definitions, while specific dictionaries are considered to be onmassiological, first identifying the concepts and then establishing the terms used to designate them. In practice, both approaches are used for both types. There are other types of dictionaries that do not fit well with the above differences, for example bilingual dictionaries, synonyms and thesaurus dictionaries. The meaning of the word (inaccurate) is usually understood to refer to a general purpose monolingual dictionary
