Here's what Wikipedia says:  A dado (US and Canada), housing (UK) or trench (Europe) is a slot or trench cut into the surface of a piece of machinable material, usually wood. When viewed in cross-section, a dado has three sides. A dado is cut across, or perpendicular to, the grainand is thus differentiated from a groove which is cut with, or parallel to, the grain.

through[1] dado involves cuts which run between both edges of the surface, leaving both ends open. A stopped or blind[2] dado ends before one or both of the cuts meets the edge of the surface

Dados are often used to affix shelves to a bookcase carcase. Combined with a rabbet (rebate) on an adjoining piece, they are used to make the rabbet and dado joint, sometimes used in case goods.

A Dado is the lower part of the wall of a room, below about waist height, if it is a different color or has a different covering than the upper part.
