    I don't know what you mean by "dictionary". I'm guessing that what you're looking for is called something else. Please give an example of a word or three that you would like to know about.

    Hmmm. I don't know of anything that broad. But I think if you search for "Ruby Glossary" you should find something fairly decent.

    Get this book - Foundation Rails (http://www.friendsofed.com/book.html?isbn=1430210397).

    It is the best beginners Rails book I have ever seen. It covers some of the more basic ideas of Rails that most books just assume that you already know. However, it is published by Friends of Ed - they normally don't have the best books (IMHO), and are prone to lots of errata. This book however is top notch.
