# Thesaurus for statistics and machine learning terms

Does there exist any reference thesaurus for statistics and machine learning terms? I know that Wikipedia articles often contain synonyms, but I would like to have a mere thesaurus that I could go through easily (vs. a full encyclopedia) to make sure I know all the jargon.

• What a great question! I would like this thesaurus, too. On the other hand, I think that there are often subtle nuances that may lay down some pitfalls. For example, I have herd the terms hierarchical linear models, multilevel models, mixed models, and random effects models (and possibly a few others) used as synonyms in ways that I understood, but I also can draw subtle (and perhaps not so subtly) distinctions between each of these terms. – Alexis May 3 '14 at 2:25
• Maybe you saw this: statweb.stanford.edu/~tibs/stat315a/glossary.pdf? Far from comprehensive though – Alexey Grigorev Feb 15 '15 at 8:04
