Dictionary of Architecture and Construction
- Latest Edition: Fourth Edition, 2005.

This is the best construction dictionary we know of. It includes some jargon, but usually explains without the use of jargon. It includes some contract documents-related terms but is mostly about the physical elements of construction.
The terms and definitions are drawn from the publications of many specialty associations in the construction industry.
