DEFINITIONAL DIRECTORIES

Scientific and Technical terms are best understood in the context of their definitions.  Therefore, the Commission makes definitional dictionaries in all subjects/ fields. In fact, a glossary contains the technical terms in English along with Hindi/Regional language equivalents but in a definitional dictionary, the technical terms in English with Hindi/Regional language equivalents are conceptually explained in few lines in Hindi/Regional language.  Since scientific concepts are better understood in a definition with gravity, the role of definitional dictionary is significant and important to students, teachers, researchers and other users.  Thus, in a way, definitional dictionary is an extension of the process of evolution of terminology for ensuring better understanding and usage.
