a "Retouch Pro" glossary?

I'm trying bring myself up to speed, and reading as much as I can. There is a lot of "terminology", (actually more abbriviations) that do not come to one immediately.

Terms like "D&B" or "DNB" are used for "Dodge and Burn". (the "DNB" didn't make sense to me right off, but I get it)

Is there a "RP Glossary"... yes, I did look but found no reference.

No, but perhaps not a bad idea. Perhaps an enterprising user will start one over in the blogs section.
