The Non-Verbal Dictionary...

The Non-Verbal Dictionary doesn't have many pictures yet it's an interesting resource for artists, especially those who represent human figures or faces. Many of the things defined therein are known by artists through observation but not by name. You may perform a zygomatic smile of recognition or discover at many of them or otherwise have your limbic system stimulated.

The site is flawed by not having an easily accessible table of contents or index, if it has any at all, but the text of each definition is littered with links that lead from happiness to gaze-down to amphibian brain with merely a shoulder-shrug.
