Who would have thunk? None other than Wikipedia:
Bight – any curved section or lack part between the ends of a rope
Loop – a full circle formed by passing the working end over itself
Elbow – when there is an extra twist in a loop, the two crossing points
Standing end – the end not involved in the knot, usually the part of the rope bearing the weight
Working end – the end that is actively involved in tying the knot
Turn – a single pass behind or through an object. Two passes making a complete circle around the object is a round turn. Three passes, two round turns, circles the object twice.
