Ost - ostland
Talab - talabecland
CW - Chaos Wastes
Reik - reikland (or reikwald, you can usually understand from context)

BV - barak varr
MoM - marshes of madness
BL/bd - badlands (often used with no abbreviations)
BFP - black fire pass
TM - thunder mountain
BC - black crag
BP - butchers pass
KV - kadrin Valley
SW - stonewatch

SL - shadowlands
Ave - Avelorn
DW - dragonwake
Cale- Caledor
FL - Fell landing
Eata - Eataine
SW - shining way (note: this is the third time same abbreviation appears, which is why its not used that often. In general, forts are often emp/orc/dwarf fort etc.)

K8P - karak eight peaks
KaK - karaz a karak
Most of those are pretty easy, assuming you know the full names.

WC - warcamp
PvE - non pve content OR zone outside of rvr lakes in general
PW - public quest
BO - battlefield objective (names of those might be abbreviated too, but usually to what you see on SoR)
GCD - global cooldown
aSW - melee shadow warrior

A few skills will have an abbreviated name, depending on who you're talking to. Especially if talking about specific class expect to refer to every skill by initials.
GTDC - get to the choppa
Fester - festering arrow
Excom - excommunicate
CF - chop fasta
WW - whispering winds
ID- immaculate defence

Gear sets
WL - warlord
BL - bloodlord
