    What is the definition?

    Ok, it sounds like a dumb question, but does "academic" only refer to profs who taught your courses? How about researchers I have worked with who have not taught any of my courses? Or a researcher I worked with who only taught a few lectures in one of my courses?

    I think you could use the non-academic letter for a researcher with whom you have worked, but who has not taught you in a course (I did). Honestly, I'm not sure that it really matters what the relationship is to you: if they're great letters, they will enhance your application.
