Put another way

A _____________ is one of the wikis running in a WikiFarm, but not in
the directory where the software is installed.

A _____________ is a wiki in a farm that is located in the same
directory where the software is installed.

Those are from the current draft of my FarmSetupByExample document
with "field wiki" and "home wiki" replaced with underscores.
