glossary of audio file terms for newbies

just wondering if there is a website already in existence, or if one of the more experienced A'goners could craft something--Cheers
This may be a good start:
Stereophile published an extensive audio glossary about fifteeen years ago. It's been republished on their website.
Buy a copy of Robert Harley's "Complete Guide to High End Audio".

A great read and reference tool.
