Having long ago forsaken words as their primary mode of communication, car designers sometimes need a helping hand when engaging with the outside world. The aptly titled Car Design News Car Design Glossary sets out to define a common language for us to communicate with car designers and for them to begrudgingly communicate with us. Strictly limited to professional terminology - the glossary concentrates on terms like swage lines rather than pick up lines - there's no word yet on its effectiveness in dealing with the fairer sex, should such a need ever arise.
