What is a glossary? 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).

Requested Terms[edit]

  • Overshot,
  • Breast Shot,
  • Undershot
  • Wheel pit
  • Names of channels, and water controls
  • Tentering Gear
  • Dressing
  • Fulling Mills- all the terms
  • Paper Mills- all the terms

I could have a stab at it myself but it is really outside my expertise. ClemRutter (talk) 19:33, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

the first three terms are dealt with under the waterwheel article. Tentering gear and Dressing are outside the scope of this article at the moment. If the suggested Portal for Mills ever gets off the ground then maybe this article could be expanded into a full glossary. Fulling mills and Paper mills are outside my area of expertise.
