For those just starting with SQL Server, some definitions are provided below:

SQL stands for Structured Query Language. It is most often pronounced "sequel" or sometimes pronounced by spelling out the letters "S-Q-L". SQL is a query language that is used to interact and perform tasks with relation databses. This language was originally developed by IBM in the 1970s.

T-SQL (Transact SQL) is a proprietary SQL extension used by Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase SQL Server. T-SQL adds extensions for procedural programming.

A Relational Database is a method of structuring data in the form of records so that relationships between seperate entities and attributes can be used for data access. A database stores the data in two-dimensional tables (relations) that can be joined by keys in one or more columns (attributes)
