-The [[:​gellish_english_dictionary|Gellish taxonomic dictionary of Formal English]] is an electronic '​smart'​ dictionary and taxonomy and ontology. This means that it contains definitions of concepts, each of which is identified by a unique identifier (UID) and can be referenced by one or more '​names'​ (terms, including synonyms, abbreviations and codes) and includes relations between concepts, among others subtype-supertype relations. The vocabulary of the formal language, being the names of concepts, are mainly normal ​English ​terms, many of them can also be found in ordinary English dictionaries. All definitions satisfy the [[:​proper_definition_of_a_concept|rules for proper definitions]] of concepts in Gellish. This means that every concept not only has a textual definition, but also that they have at least an explicit relation with its supertype concept(s) and thus together they form a consistent subtype-supertype hierarchy of concepts or taxonomy. The [[:​gellish|Gellish Modeling Methodology]] provides guidelines for the extension of the taxonomic dictionary and for the creation of taxonomic dictionaries or just vocabularies in other languages. Such extensions or replacements may lead to separate [[:​proper_definition_of_a_concept|domain dictionaries]] for specialized application areas.
