(EN) – A Glossary of Science Fiction Jargon | Eric Raymond

“Prototype Worlds: A Glossary of SF Jargon is a glossary of SF coinages, collected for the enjoyment and education of SF fans, SF writers, lexicographers, and linguists.

Some words coined elsewhere but now used almost exclusively in SF (e.g. cyborg, ornithopter) are included”
