Glossary of Possibility Management Terms

From the Greek term glossa meaning tongue was derived the Latin term glossarium meaning a difficult word requiring further explanation. Middle English extended the meaning further with the word glossarye meaning a list of terms in a special subject, field or area of usage with accompanying definitions. The special area of usage in this case is Possibility Management. Most of the words in this glossary are not new or difficult so much as being used in a context that unfolds deeper or more specific meanings from them. I look forward to the day when such a glossary would be unnecessary because the meanings were already understood through common usage. In this Glossary I have capitalized most of the terms in each explanation that are themselves also explained in the Glossary.
