I'm not sure if there's a complete list published, but here are come general terms:

CCTAP = Command Counters, Trade Goods, Action Cards, Political Cards. Used in PBF games to indicate a person't race sheet status, usually in AS/FS/CP, TG/AC/PC format (where AS is Strategy Allocation, FS is Fleet Supply, CP is Command Pool, TG is Trade Goods, AC is Action Cards, PC is Political Cards)

WS = War Sun
TG = Trade Good

And some others:

AC = Action Card
PC = Political Card
PO = Public Objective (or Preliminary Objective, depending on context)
SO = Secret Objective
MU = Mechanized Units
GF = Ground Forces
FI = Fighter
CV = Carrier
DD = Destroyer
CA = Cruiser
FS = Flagship
R/I = Resources/Influence (on a planet, usually)
SC = Strategy Card
Merc = Mercenary
CC = Command Counter

There may be a few others that I am overlooking.

Yep, and some people use PrO for preliminary objectives, to avoid confusion.

I have never used FG. I think FS is fine as the context makes it clear which one it is in most cases.

I prefer FG. Though it's true that it's only a relevant point when discussing strategy or mechanics outside of the context of a specific game. Similarly, "SA" should refer to Strategy Allocation, but one could be confused and associate it with a well-known variant set from the ti3wiki called Shattered Ascension.

I will also note that there doesn't seem to be a consensus about Fighters. I usually just shorthand it to "F", like with American fighter jets. I am in a minority of one, there, though. Sigma is also in the minority with his "FI" designation. By far the most common, in my experience, is "FF."

Otherwise, the only other one I can think of is "Rep" for Representative.
