(EN) - The definitive glossary of wine tasting terms | April Walloga | Multilingualism | Scoop.it

"There's a lot of ego in wine speak, both on the part of eager oenophiles who want to assert their expertise and occasional wine drinkers who keep mum for fear of saying the wrong thing.

"Did you feel totally lost the last time you went to a running store to shop for a good pair of shoes? The sales people were probably helpful and well-intentioned, but you might have felt they were speaking a different language with all sorts of technical shoe lingo.
No wonder. There are so many shoe terms and technological fancy-talk in the running world that it might as well be a different language.
Don’t despair. We’re here to help you decipher the shoe language."

"Many definitions used in medically assisted reproduction (MAR) vary in different settings, making it difficult to standardize and compare procedures in different countries and regions. With the expansion of infertility interventions worldwide, including lower resource settings, the importance and value of a common nomenclature is critical. The objective is to develop an internationally accepted and continually updated set of definitions, which would be utilized to standardize and harmonize international data collection, and to assist in monitoring the  vailability, efficacy, and safety of assisted reproductive technology (ART) being practiced worldwide."
