    If you mean keywords, there aren't that many

    asm
    do
    inline
    short
    typeid
    auto
    double
    int
    signed
    typename
    bool
    dynamic_cast
    long
    sizeof
    union
    break
    else
    mutable
    static
    unsigned
    case
    enum
    namespace
    static_cast
    using
    catch
    explicit
    new
    struct
    virtual
    char
    extern
    operator
    switch
    void
    class
    false
    private
    template
    volatile
    const
    float
    protected
    this
    wchar_t
    const_cast
    for
    public
    throw
    while
    continue
    friend
    register
    true
    default
    goto
    reinterpret_cast
    try
    delete
    if
    return
    typedef

    Any good book on C++ will explain the keywords and their use

    But if you mean programming terminology, things like "Linked Lists" and "Encapsulation", I don't think there is one source that can possibly explain everything... however, a good book with a lot of good terminology is "The C++ Programming Language" by Bjarne Stroustrup, the book is very precise, and will have a lot of the most common terms you'll see

    Anyway, if you got a good compiler, he will say something like 'error: keyword used as variable' or something like that. Not sure
    what does signature stand for?
