It's been quite a while, but I imagine it has a detailed glossary.
It was perfect for a beginner when we had it, and it is small and cheap

Get one at the used book store for a couple of dollars. You won't cry in your beer
if it gets wet or falls overboard
verrrry basic. tells you how to adjust sails
for each point of wind
, how to anchor
(had to pull the book out and use it one night for just this purpose) and every other newbie thing you can think of.
