Gloves, Mittens etcetera

Hello there.
I recently took up knitting and while looking for patterns discovered something:
apparently no one is sure what a fingerless glove is.



I´m not a native speaker, but I thought that

these are mittens.


and these are gloves.


and those are fingerless gloves.

But on the site (ravelry.com) apparently fingerless gloves are something like this.


What do you think?
Does picture 3 show fingerless gloves? Does picture 4 show fingerless gloves? Are both fingerless gloves?
I´m a bit confused here.
What is a fingerless glove to you?
And do you have an alternative name for either picture 3 or 4 if not fingerless glove?
Thanks in advance
