This table is an attempt to list all go terms, Japanese or otherwise, used on this website, along with their English translations and sample diagrams.
I will attempt to populate this list little by little, and when it has enough content I will also add a link to it in the right-side bar.
While I am populating the list, I would appreciate it if you could point out any mistakes or terms I have forgotten in the comments section. Thank you!
