Financial dictionaryThe best online financial dictionaries provide key terms in finance, money, and investing, and are subdivided into categories so that you can sort through terms not just alphabetically, but by context as well.
Accounting for non-accountantsSome industry-specific dictionaries fail to define the most basic of terms because it's assumed that one is already familiar with them. The answer to these oversights is a layperson's accounting and finance dictionary that covers even the most basic of terms.
CommerceSometimes a word can have a specific connotation within a certain industry context, like financing or accounting, that sets it apart from the same term in a more general context. Commerce, for example, is the driving force that makes the accounting and finance worlds move, but it uses some common words and phrases such as "Access URL" or "Loading" in industry-specific ways.
InvestingThere's a lot of crossover between terms and concepts in the accounting and financing world. Sometimes you also need to know terms from closely related industries like stock trading and investing.
