It's a specialized type of annotated (stand-alone) list article, where the annotations are descriptions of the terms listed. Glossaries serve the primary functions of lists as well as present definitions to assist topic identification, link selection, and browsing. List structuring and annotation is covered in WP:LISTS, and glossary formatting is covered at Wikipedia:Manual of Style (glossaries).

This list was originally meant to be a List of Japanese Buddhist art and architecture, useful to help people understand articles about Buddhist temples, and it still shows a considerable slant in that direction. This is deliberate, because Buddhism if very far from my competences (and my interests), and I find terms like bodhisattva very hard to understand. I am interested however in temples, hence the article. I hope someone will fill the blanks I left. urashimataro (talk) 05:12, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
