The Glossarist (Walt McIntosh), has over two hundred books on bowling plus more than 25 pamphlets, some dating back to the 19th century, these all provided input. Some words came from fellow bowlers, some from bowling chat rooms, some from bowling equipment manufacturers (Storm, Kegel and others), some from magazines (the Glossarist subscribes to Bowling This Month, Bowlers Journal International and Stars and Strikes), some from the ABC/USBC Rule books and specifications, some from Tenpin Bowling Australia, some from the British Tenpin Bowling Association, some from the World Tenpin Bowling Association, many from the Internet (over 30 glossaries downloaded) and at least two from television: Hambone and Four Horsemen.
