Carmen Giunta's glossary is no longer at the link shown on the page above but is now a downloadable pdf at:

I assume Carmen Giunta has said it's okay to create and disseminate such a PDF?  I mean a lot of people who do that sort of work are happy for it to be so treated, but the url of the place hosting the PDF suggests they might not have.


(Also I have Crosland's studies in the language of chemistry; found in a 2nd hand shop in Rhyll of all places, it came from a girls school in Wrexham.  Very useful book, but slightly disturbing to find people referring to it decades after it's original publication, surely more work has been done)

Yes I think it's OK - this is his home page which suggests that he's into "copyleft":
