      Though I've come across lots of lists of Pali terms out there, I
      haven't yet found any that are organized in any way. So I'm trying
      to put one together for beginners - i.e. myself.

      I'd like to organize it according to the teachings. Here is the
      outline I have so far. (In English only) Please let me know if
      there are any recommendations. I'm trying to do it in a "top down"
      approach, with broader terminology first, then more specific
      technical terminology following.

      Hope this outline formats ok:
