Pryor: Glossary for Beginners

Very short but contains some useful distinctions to keep in mind and some very common mistakes.

For example the distinction between a falsehood and a fallacy.

falsehood and fallacy

A fallacy is an error in one's inferences or argument. A falsehood is an error in the claims one makes.

Claims, beliefs, and statements are true or false. Only inferences and arguments can be fallacious.
