A nice glossary, new Fleet members who are new to MMOs can refer to this:

AoE: Area of effect. These are spells/buffs/etc that will only affect people, for good or bad within a specific range of the character.
Aggro: Short for aggrivation. Aggro is a point system that tells a monster which player it shoud attack, depending on how much damage or healing it can do.
Alt: An alternative character that's not played or favored as much. Alt-itus is used to describe a person who has many alts and plays them more than their main character.
CC: Crowd Control. Used to refer to any ability that hinders an opponent from attacking or moving.
DKP: Dragon Kill Points. A systemnormally used by raiding guilds in oder to distribute highly-sought after items fairly, based on how often a person plays.
DoT: Damage ove Time. DoTs come in the form of spells or poisons that deal a small amount of damage over a long period of time.
DPS: Damage Per Second. Damage dealing classes, such as those with high agility or powerful spells, generally have the greatest DPS.
