About this eBook

PREFACE Extension Education is certainly one of the most rapidly advancing of the agricultural sciences, and probably no other field has stimulated so many diverse disciplines. The fact th at Extension Education has attracted scientists from different spheres such as Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Veterinary, Home Science, Dairy Science, Food Technology, Fisheries, Rural Management, Forestry, Psychology, Sociology, Health and Nutrition, Journalism, and other scientists of diverse backgrounds to contribute to its development is one of the chief reason for its prodigious growth. Such growth is of course, accompanied by a proliferation in terminology, and this terminology constitutes a problem to the beginning agriculture students. Most of the words and abbrevia tions are not be found in a standard collegiate dictionary and many are not present in dictionaries of biology. This is because many of the term s are newly coined. Such subject dictionaries like the TERMINOLOGY OF EXTENSION EDUCATION have fascinated the teacher and the taught everywhere. They stim ulate us in knowing the unknown. In fact a terminology of such a kind has an ocean of information which tries to satisfy us of our unending th irst for knowledge. The task of selecting the term s to be included in any branch of science offers many difficulties particularly in the case of Extension Education which draws upon from several diverse fields of agriculture. How far it is advisable to include terms from those overlapping sciences which lie on the border land is a question on which no two people might think alike. I have given every word an independent examination, so as to take in all, in fact, which might be fairly expected, and yet to exclude technical term s which belong to another science, which otherwise, would have extended this dictionary to an inconvenient size. I have therefore only enum erated those best known or of more frequent mention in literature, or interesting for special reasons. While in the process of writing and compilation, I have carefully considered the criticisms of this work which have come under my
notice, and have adopted all those suggestions which could be taken up, so far as they did not contradict the plan on which this volume was drawn. Some criticisms were m utually destructive, others were due to insufficient knowledge on the p art of the critic, whilst others advocated radical changes, which would have made this, not my book, but some other person s product. I have tried to furnish the term s in use in various periods, so th a t a paper or book of any period can be read, and its special expression understood to cut down the volume would have been therefore unwise, and the attem pt would have failed to gain the approval of competent judges, as no two teachers would have agreed upon the exclusion of given term. In more than one case, an obsolete term has been lately revived. Several newly coined term s also find their place in this book. It has been my duty to condens the definitions, often a difficult m atter when a longer explanation would have been easier to draw
