An excellent compendium. The only thing I can see that's slightly incorrect is the definition for "parapsychology", being that it isn't just the scientific study of *only* psi, but any paranormal phenomena. Useful.

I find that parapsychology is mostly used to refer primarilly to the study of mental or psychological abilities beyond the conventional.  While dictionary.com and wikipedia definitions aren't always the most accurate for terms in this field, in this case they do agree with the psi definition, although worded in their own way.  In addition, this lets the term remain a bit better defined than referencing the paranormal, since the word paranormal is unfortunately defined more in terms of what it is not, rather than what it is.
I intend to update this list with time as I find better definitions and find new words that need added.
