No simple definitions. Try John Rice's book 'Chess Wizardry'
for most, perhaps all of them. Or try the Chess Problem Discussion
Board at, but even then I'm sure
you'd be referred to the book: some of these take fairly careful
digging into and analysis of example problems.

(Some of the simpler terms probably appear in Oxford Companion
to Chess, as well.)
