Askew's Glossary of
Victorian Colonial Terminology

Colonial Glossary Introduction
I've sorted the words based on generic regions of the world where most colonial games and works of fiction take place. This is an imprecise and subjective organization, since so many words were used in more than one area, and is depends more on how gamers classify their gaming areas than on real geography. 

If there's a particular word you're looking for, it's probably faster to check the alphabetized Indexes first rather than trying to guess where I might have stuck it.
