I think one of the most important aspects of learning is knowing how to organize information in your head. And after all this time I realized I don't know the rules behind chemical nomenclature as well as I should; for instance, I can name chemical compounds just 'cause, having no idea why that is the name it has (probably just memorized it at some point). So I've been trying to find some organized guide to chemical nomenclature online (especially inorganic chemistry), but it has been harder than I though it should. Could anyone maybe point out a source? By the way, I do better with tables and graphs than long detailed readings. On the meanwhile, I do have the PDF version of the IUPAC's red book, but it's a 400 page monster of a book that even has a section on roman numerals, and I just feel like it's a bit of an overkill. Or is the nomenclature of inorganic compounds more complicated than I think? Anyway, how does IUPAC generalize the nomenclature of inorganic compounds? What is the best abstraction? Does it start with acids, bases, salts and oxides? Because that is how I remember learning it in high school. Or do those already have some similar rules (maybe something to do with oxidation states)?
