Oom: Out of Mana.
Lom: Low on Mana.
IAS: Increased Attack Speed
Upper: Upper lane.
Bottom: Bottom lane.
River: River that cuts across the map. "Watch out for River, might be a ganking party there".
Sigil: Also known as "Golem" or "Lizard" buff.
Backdoor: When the enemy surprised you by jumping you from the back / entering your base to finish you off, from behind.
Juke (Juking): When you "juke" an enemy thats chasing you, it basically mean you're fooling them.
TP: Short for 'Teleport' (Summoner ability).
Bait (Baiting): Placing yourself in an open location, seemingly easy to kill, but you're just baiting them to your ganking party waiting in the brush.

Something I've seen but not quite figured out what it stands for:

CS, It obviously involves last hits but what in the world does the C and the S stand for?

CS stands for "creep score", a term invented by DotA players that has now migrated into LoL. More accurately, it should be CK, for "creep kills", but the original term was CS.

In the Nunu build, Simple Logic mentions "AP/SP Carry". I still haven't figured out what "SP" is. Spell penetration? iono lol
