Google says that a ligand is an ion or molecule that binds to a central metal atom to form a coordination complex, but in actual english, a ligand is just like, a smaller atom that binds to a larger atom or molecule.

In the book, a ligand refers to "A group attached to the central metal ion in a complex"
