Following Aditya’s recommendation on making a glossary with ConTeXt 
and have looked through several older and newer manuals under “abbreviations” 
and into the source. 

However, I cannot figure out if there is a simple way to define my own command 
to achieve the following:

% I wonder also what #4 is supposed to do?

\glossary[US]{United States}{The US is a country in the Americas.}
\glossary[UK]{United Kingdom}{The UK is a country in Europe.}

% CURRENT RESULT (guessing from what I understand from the source this is 
converted internally to):


\NC {\bf United Kingdom} \NC The UK is a country in Europe. \NC \NR
\NC {\bf United States} \NC The US is a country in the Americas. \NC \NR


\unexpanded\def\myglossary#1#2#3{{\bf #1}#2} % or similar


{\bf United Kingdom.} The UK is a country in Europe. Nice would be even if 
            this could be indented at some point, but tastes may vary on 
            indention for sure.

{\bf United States.} The US is a country in the Americas.

% or using itemize etc.

I am aware that \placelistofsynonyms has a command=... option, but it doesn’t 
do anything for me. Also, the location=inmarigin option (which I suppose could 
be used to tweak the desired result in a way) stopped working in MKIV (?) and I 
can see in the source that it has a “fixed” assignment to location=left.

Any hints very welcome. :)
