Aggro - To have tower aggro means the tower is targeting (and so attacking) you. You can lose tower aggro by stepping out of range of the tower.

Exchange - An exchange is when you exchange damage with your opponent. Usually, in lane, when you go to poke/harass your opponent, they will face you and do some damage back. If you deal much more damage than you take then that was a good exchange. If you take much more damage (be it from minions or the enemy hero) than you deal then it is a bad exchange. If you deal damage but receive none, then it is not an exchange, but just free harass.

actually, noob is refered to a player who is bad nowadays or the beginner that doesn't want to be better, but noob is not equal to newb, who's just learning how to. Also, you could add feed/feeder (to give kills on purpose)
EDIT: You could also mention flamer (says bad things about you, often fucks your mother (no insult, just an example of their behavior)) and troll (person who trolls, often feeds, sometimes picks strange heroes with strange spells and buys strange items like 6 pairs of wizard boots for exemplary Layla). If I'll recall any other, I'll write it down here :-)
