...Only one problem. I can't remember anyone ever explaining outlining to me, or if they did, they used a different word.

Any help for the terminology impaired?

An outline is simply put, a list. Well a list with lists in it.

That doesn't really explain anything at all does it.

It's a format for organizing ideas, especially used for writing. I learned it in English class.

Basically you list topics, and then inside those topics you list sub-topics and then you can go on with sub-sub topics.

An example:

I. Introduction to Outlines
A. Definition of an Outline
B. Example Outline
II. Outline Format
A. Style One
B. Style Two
C. Common Outline Rules
III. Uses for Outlines
A. Research Papers
B. Speeches
C. Explaining Outlines
D. Running Campaigns
