About the Dictionary

Miscellany | References | Top

I've found that by far the biggest challenge of writing Stargate fan fiction is spelling. Even the encyclopedia sites vary in the spelling of essential terms. Naqahdah alone has given me hours of trouble. I decided to make my own dictionary, so at least I'd be consistent across my own fic.

The purpose of this dictionary is to standardize spelling, not to replicate a compendium. Therefore, more attention is given to the source of the chosen spelling than to the definition of the term. Definitions are relatively spoiler-free. If you feel a definition is a spoiler or exceptionally offensive, email me and I'll change it.

Submissions are welcome at the email address at the bottom of the page. Please include a reliable source.

Repository: A Stargate Spelling Dictionary

The citation (in italics) is for the primary spelling (in bold) or for the spelling indicated in parenthesis, but not the rest of the entry. Some reference works are listed and linked at the bottom of the page. Episode numbers are taken mainly from TVTome.com - see the episode list for details.

Terms in the Latin, Cyrillic or Stargate alphabet are eligible for inclusion in the Repository; the main standard for inclusion is whether an ickle newbie writing her first fanfic would wonder how to spell the word. Terms that are frequently or intentionally misspelled are also included. Character names from the credits are included, regardless of ease of spelling.

For the purposes of the Repository, a canon spelling is one that has appeared on-screen in a broadcast episode or its credits (but not in the closed-captioning). When other sources clash with canon, canon wins (eg., naqahdah). If there is no canon substantiation for a spelling, standard English usage, official materials (such as the scifi.com website and tvtome.com episode credits), published reference works, and fan usage (especially at rdanderson.com) will be considered, in that order. The final arbiter in all cases is yours truly (Jemima Pereira).

For reference, incorrect and otherwise deprecated versions of terms are listed (in strike-out) in the entry for the correct spelling. Most notably, movie spellings (eg., O'Neil) and Teal'cized spellings (eg., MajorCarter) are deprecated. If you know of a misspelling that has been omitted, please email me.

It is, of course, your choice whether to use a deprecated spelling.
