Definitions are taken from the glossary of David Sax's excellent "Save the Deli." This is not intended to be comprehensive, nor are the descriptions assumed to be definitive. I've tried to include alternate spellings and names, but it's entirely possible I have missed some. Please point them out and they'll be added if accurate. Quiz gezunt!
