Please carefully consider your use of the abbreviations and acronyms in your conversations, since they can be unfamiliar when not used in conjunction with other terms or without defining context.<br />
Many While many terms apply globally, however, this glossary is US English-centric.<br />
The descriptions within this Glossary attempt to merely resolve ambiguity of terms, and reference other Wiki pages, articles, and sections, along with other Waze and external sources. This intentional lack of description content helps avoid duplication of source content, and facilitates future maintenance when source content changes.<br />

For example, if the angle at which a local road meets a highway is 20 degrees, Waze will instruct a user turning off the highway to "EXIT RIGHT" (assuming right hand drive countries). If we consider this a 'turnoff' ''(at grade junction)'', and not an 'exit', we will want to force Waze to treat it as a 'turn'. By making a tiny crook (the micro-dogleg) at the very start of the local segment, we can have the final piece of the segment meet the highway at 90 degrees, and cause a turn instruction.<br><br>See the [[Junction Style Guide]] Wiki Page<br>See the [[How Waze determines turn / keep / exit maneuvers]] Wiki Page|related1=Dogleg|updated=2015-10-09|added=2015-01-12}}
