A person's vocabulary is the set of words within a language that are familiar to that person. A vocabulary usually develops with age, and serves as a useful and fundamental tool for communication and acquiring knowledge. Acquiring an extensive vocabulary is one of the largest challenges in learning a second language.

In quality management, vocabulary refers to the specific words and terms that are used to describe and communicate concepts related to the quality of products, services, and processes.
