What are they talking about? With so many acronyms flying about, having a LEGO term glossary like this one will help you decipher the SNOT from the SNIR. The number of acronyms being thrown about, isn’t quite as much as in the tech world, but it’s close!
Enjoy and if you think we’ve missed any key words, please shout out.

  • Element

    Each unique part and colour LEGO piece is an Element. There are wide range of Elements, and these can be categorised into major groups such as Bricks, Tiles, Plates and much more. For example, a blue 4 x 2 Brick is a different element to a grey 4 x 2 brick, even though they are the same part. A fantastic guide to the categories has been put together by Tom Alphin @ The Brick Architect.
