Few cooking terminologies

When ever i read a recipe on the internet, there were many words in that recipe which sound alien to me. Cooking it self is alien to me, but then these words were like Greek/latin to me.So i goggled it out and found the meanings,now its relatively more  easy to understand a recipe but not that easy to make it.
