An encylopedia (/ensaɪkləpi:dɪə/) is a type of reference work or compendium providing summaries of collective knowledge from either all branches or from a particular field (such as ELT, or linguistics)[1]

Entries are usually more detailed than dictionary definitions which focus on linguistic information, or glossaries which also focus on definitions. There may be genre overlap.

Teflpedia, as the name implies, is an encyclopedia in part.
