Can anyone recommend a dictionary for interaction design terms? I am
familiar with this online resource:
http://www.usabilityfirst.com/glossary/main.cgi
<http://www.usabilityfirst.com/glossary/main.cgi> and I am interested in
discovering additional noteworthy dictionaries out there, especially any
printed versions.

[PGP] The glossary you've mentioned is the best one I've found online.

The SAP Design Guild has some good glossaries:

http://www.sapdesignguild.org/resources/glossary_usab/index.htm
http://www.sapdesignguild.org/resources/glossary_web/index.htm

There are many other glossaries and guidelines on this site. Here's a link to the directory:

http://www.sapdesignguild.org/resources/resources.asp

Other online glossaries include:

http://www.usability.uk.com/glossary/glossary.htm

http://www.classicsys.com/classic_site/cfm/glossary.cfm?item=A

http://www.remedy.com/customers/dev_community/UserExperience/glossary.htm

http://otn.oracle.com/tech/blaf/specs/blafGlossary.html

http://www.deltamethod.net/hb_Glossary.htm

http://www.ergolabs.com/glossary.htm

http://www.processforusability.co.uk/Usability_test/html/glossary.html

http://www.iawiki.net/IAGlossary

Adobe has a glossary of typographic terms:

http://www.adobe.com/type/topics/glossary.html

Most of the platform-guidelines books have good glossaries, for example:

Microsoft Windows User Experience

Apple Human Interface Guidelines, which is available online at:

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/OSXHIGuidelines/index.html

You will find standard terminology for UI widgets in the following:

Microsoft Manual of Style for Technical Publications

The Apple Publications Style Guide, which is available online at:

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/APStyleGuide/AppleStyleGuide2003.pdf

Hope this helps.
