GLOSSARY

a
Abhidharma. A body of subtle philosophy that is part of Buddhist universal law, the Dharma. The abhidharma contains philosophical, psychological, and doctrinal discussions and classifications. Constructed by Buddhist scholars, the law is based on their interpretations of Buddhist thought and principles. The Abhidharma is one of three parts or “baskets” of Buddhist doctrine (the Tripitaka), together with the Sutra and the Vinaya.
Abolition/Abolitionist. With reference to commercial sex, historically refers positively to the legalization of commercial sex, and to the abolition of prohibitions against it. The Abolitionists were a group of English citizens led by Josephine Butler who sought to abolish the Contagious Diseases Acts of 1866 to 1869, as they opposed government regulation of commercial sex in England. Use of the term abolitionist can be confusing because its use is often reversed to refer to prohibition, that is, to the abolition of commercial sex. See alsoprohibitionist, its opposite.
AIDS. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. HIV has been shown by polymerase chain reaction, a test for HIV itself in the blood, to be the cause of AIDS.
Ajarn. Teacher, an honored title.
Akha. One of several hill tribe groups living principally in the mountainous North in Thailand.
Alpha probability (α). The probability of a Type I error or false positive. The likelihood that a positive test result is incorrect. Seefalse positive.
American. Historical, common, and universally recognized term of reference for persons from the United States. The term American has been attacked as politically incorrect because it could be used to refer to persons from anywhere in North or South America. Persons making the politically incorrect claim do not suggest an alternative single word form. “Unitedstatesian” would be the awkward alternative. Persons from any culture should be allowed to select their own preferred term of reference.
