The following is a glossary of traditional English-language terms used in the three overarching cue sports disciplines: carom or carambole billiards referring to the various carom games played on a billiard table without pockets ; pool , which denotes a host of games played on a table with six pockets; and snooker , played on a large pocket table, and which has a sport culture unto itself distinct from pool.

The term " billiards " is sometimes used to refer to all of the cue sports, to a specific class of them, or to specific ones such as English billiards; this article uses the term in its most generic sense unless otherwise noted. However, due to the predominance of US-originating terminology in most internationally competitive pool as opposed to snooker , US terms are also common in the pool context in other countries in which English is at least a minority language, and US and borrowed French terms predominate in carom billiards.

Similarly, British terms predominate in the world of snooker, English billiards and blackball, regardless of the players' nationalities. The term "blackball" is used in this glossary to refer to both blackball and eight-ball pool as played in the Commonwealth, as a shorthand. Blackball was chosen because it is less ambiguous "eight-ball pool" is too easily confused with the related " eight-ball " , and blackball is globally standardized by an International Olympic Committee -recognized governing body , the World Pool-Billiard Association WPA ; meanwhile, its ancestor, eight-ball pool, is largely a folk game, like North American bar pool , and to the extent that its rules have been codified, they have been done so by competing authorities with different rulesets.

For the same reason, the glossary's information on eight-ball and nine-ball draws principally on the stable WPA rules, because there are many competing amateur leagues and even professional tours with divergent rules for these games. Foreign-language terms are generally not within the scope of this list, unless they have become an integral part of billiards terminology in English e.

A violation of a particular game's rules for which a set penalty is imposed. In many pool games the penalty for a foul is ball-in-hand anywhere on the table for the opponent. In some games such as straight pool, a foul results in a loss of one or more points. In one-pocket, in which a set number of balls must be made in a specific pocket, upon a foul the player must return a ball to the table.

In some games, three successive fouls in a row is a loss of game. In straight pool, a third successive foul results in a loss of 16 points 15 plus one for the foul. A situation where a player has fouled , leaving the opponent snookered. In addition, some variations of the game allow the player to pot one of the opposition's balls, on the first visit only, without the loss of a "free shot".

In carom games such as straight rail , balkline and cushion caroms , where all the balls are kept near each other and a cushion, so that with very soft shots the balls can be "nursed" down a rail, allowing multiple successful shots that effectively replicate the same ball setup so that the nurse shots can be continued almost indefinitely, unless a limit is imposed by the rules.
