Glossaries of Terms



Has anyone here ever attempted to set up a glossary of terms as part of their BDD work? I'm really intrigued by the concept, even though it's not officially part of the cucumber/gherkin specification right now. 

Ideally, I'd like to set up a list of terms with their meanings to supplement the feature files we're helping our client write. It would be great eventually to a plugin that could bring up the meaning defined in a popup if the user's mouse hovered over a domain concept.

Initially, I'm not sure I could build an effective glossary by reading over the code base, as the code is not great quality, and employs a very anemic domain model. But something that was synced to the feature files to ensure that the domain terms there were all accounted for would be very useful. 

Does anyone have any experience in this kind of thing?

 (P.S. I'm new to this, so apologies if I'm posting to the wrong board. If the administrator is reading this and it is, please let me know where I should be posting it)
