In order to speak with precision about time-space (1D space + 3D time) I’ve had to invent many new terms. I’ve tried to make them parallel to the corresponding space-time (3D space + 1 D time) terms and to follow scientific practice of using Greek and Latin roots. These new time-space terms are placed parallel to their corresponding space-time terms in two pdf’s, ** Parallel Glossary for Classical Physics & Transportation** and

*.*

**Parallel Glossary for Relativity Physics**Note that the term *time* has multiple meanings: duration, distime, distimement, 3D time, scalar time. These correspond to the meanings of *space*: length, distance, displacement, 3D space.
