Cruise lingo?

Newbie here and I love reading all the threads but sometimes, I have some difficulty with all the symbols. I know that OBC is Onboard Credit, KTTW is Key To The World, PAT is Port Arrival Time, and FE is Fish Extenders. What are some of the other "codes" commonly used? For instance, I have no clue what CM, DD, DH, etc... Are they family members?

CM = Crew (or Cast) Member, a Disney employee
DD, DH, DS, DMIL = Dear, Darling, Dizzy (whatever) Daughter, Husband, Son, Mother-In-Law, etc.

BVT = Buena Vista Theatre
WDT = Walt Disney Theatre
CC = Castaway Cay, Credit Card, Castaway Club
TA = Travel Agent, Transatlantic

Here's a list for you:
