Since crochet is a French term, I thought I would start with the French words for the various crochet stitches:
chain stitch = maille en l'air (ml), chainette
slip stitch = maille coulee (mc), petite maille
single crochet = maille serree (ms)
half double crochet = demi-bride (db)
double crochet = bride (b)
treble crochet = double bride (dble b)
