sometimes when I am not sure about a term, I would like to write it somewhere with the subsequent definition to be able to re-read it from time to time and then remember it forever. I think I am going to start now using Latex. Should I use the glossary package? I just want something like \word{term}{definition} and when compiling, the alphabetical order should be respected. Thanks

see a coded answer here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/5821/… (substituting \word for \dictentry where it appears). –  Geoffrey Jones Nov 24 '10 at 0:52

Download the glossaries package which is the latest version. It has what you are looking for and will also sort out your definitions in alphabetical order.
