Glossary is always useful, regardless of whether you are a beginner treasure hunter or a seasoned detectorist. The first category of readers will find it useful to make head or tail of all the technical terminology and also of complicated slang. The second category of readers will get some advanced skills while learning slang and jargons used by detectorists from other communities or countries.
To avoid the situation when a text on tech specs sounds like gibberish, make sure you look through a list of the most widely used terms in the metal detecting niche. On the other hand, knowledge of slang words will improve your understanding of informal videos, texts, or eventually informal communication with metal detecting buddies.
Technical terms are easy to remember as soon as you get used to them. You will find them everywhere in texts and videos, and there is no way to get rid of them when explaining features, functions, or specifications. So make sure you know what every term means, exactly.
Now, slang words will be of much use when you talk to another detectorist, online or offline. So make sure you understand the basic slang vocabulary below.
