Coder Decoder: Functional Programmer Lingo Explained, with Pictures

by Katie Miller.

From the description:

For the uninitiated, a conversation with functional programmers can feel like ground zero of a jargon explosion. This talk will help you to defend against the blah-blah blast by demystifying several terms commonly used by FP fans with bite-sized Haskell examples and friendly pictures. The presentation will also offer a glimpse of how some of these concepts can be applied in a simple Haskell web application. Expect appearances by Curry, Lens, and the infamous M-word, among others.

Informative and entertaining presentation on functional programming lingo.

Not all functional programming lingo, but enough to make you wish your presentations were this clear.
