Default What To Call Different Parts of the Disc?

Is there a universal language when referring to different parts of the disc? For instance, is the outer rim just referred to as the rim? Is the inner rim, where the bead goes, referred to as the inner rim? Bottom wing?

The "inside lip" is the area where your fingertips go for a power grip? Or is that just called the "lip"? Is there an outside lip? Ect...

I'm also curious about "disc anatomy," especially when comparing discs. Of course this applies to different molds, but it would help comparing different runs as well. After all, I have two very different champ Katanas, two very different champ Firebirds, and two very different champ Valkyries.

In describing the differences, I'm sure there are "technical" descriptions, such as leading edge, rim, flight plate, etc. But in common disc golf "vernacular," everyone talks about wing, shoulder, PLH, and more terms I can't recall. It gets confusing for new players. Please, oh experienced DGCRers, enlighten me! What's a wing? What's the shoulder? What are the other anatomical parts of a disc that I haven't even heard of before?
