I am the proud owner (!!!!!) of a 2 volume listing of all the language 
terms in RunRev/LiveCode 1.1.1, where one can read through
(if one is so inclined) ALL the terms in the language as it was at 
version 1.1.1.

It would be useful for learners if there were an equivalent list for 
versions 7.x/8.x and for the new .lc language.

A would-be learner of the new language appears to have no entry point.

Richmond.
