Glossary of terminology used by Dave McFarland

Hi, with all the different terminology being used in this course, it's easy for me to forget what is what. Is there a glossary of the terminology used in this course? I'm sure I can find it at the Mozilla developer page but I would like a resource for ONLY the terminology used so far in the JavaScript course and nothing more.

Terms such as Parameters, functions, JavaScript objects, arguments, etc...

those are all universal computer science terms. every language has functions that ask for parameters (variables used by the function), when functions are called you feed them arguments (the values held by the parameters when the function is called), objects hold data and methods (functions) can be called on them to manipulate that data, etc. if you need to look something up, wikipedia for instance has decent discussions of what these all mean.
