Every profession / hobby has its own lingo. The same with freediving. I'm wondering if there has been made an effort to collect & explain all the freediving related words in some kind of glossary or even better a freedive manual / coursebook?

People new to the subject might be puzzled by words like 'Samba', 'contraction', 'SWB', 'packs' etc...

Would be even nicer to have these terms in multiple languages.
