Musical vocabulary

When I read interviews of players in various magazines, websites, etc.

Often the words........harmonies, melody, phrasing, octaves, bridge (in a song not on a guitar), etc. are thrown around. Sometimes, I think I get their meaning, but are there definite definitions to these words, or are they just jargon that's thrown around instead of saying, "Doing it like this sounds cool."

Any websites or other resources, books, DVD's or otherwise that anyone feel could help me out? I'm self taught so my theory or technical knowledge is limited to about 20-25 chords I know.

Thanks
