If you don't think it'll take a long time, I think you misunderstood what he's asking for. Not just common abbreviations or acronyms but pretty much every part or component that you wouldn't find being discussed in the mk5 section.

I just think there are better places you can go to read about how an engine, transmission or suspension system works.

and no russ..wrong end of the stick there completely lol

I think the term you were all grasping for was Glossary.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossary - Just incase you need to know what one is :wink:

Personally I think it's a good idea. Nothing OTT but a list of commonly used jargon is always handy for newcomers. I'll even write one and maintain it if no one else wants to.
