About Striking Words

GLOSSARY: A list of difficult terms, words and phrases in alphabetical order, in a specific field of endeavor, requiring explanations. Often the words are obscure and used in a “tribal” language by people that are adept in that social and technical context.

Such is the world of bowling; a world that embodies interactions between bowlers, pro shops, bowling centers, lane mechanics, leagues, ball manufacturers, lane care professionals, standards and specifications groups, media publishers and the national and international groups which govern the sport.

This book is our effort to provide an understanding – at least in part – of the technical, scientific, social and international language we use.
