(language)
A machine-processable language whose terms are derived from a domain model and that is used for the definition of components or software architectures supporting that domain. A domain-specific language is often used as input to an application generator.

domain-specific language

A programming language designed for a particular purpose. For example, Tex is a language used for typesetting, SQL is used to query databases, and Mathematica is used for computations. A domain-specific language (DSL) is more fine tuned to the application environment than a general-purpose programming language.
