Earlier, someone was asking about Filemaker terms versus other databases. I recently started researching this and have gleaned that there are actually 3 sets of terms: the FMP terms, other Relational Database Management System terms (Oracle, Access, SQL, etc) and then the general terms used in relational data modeling theory. I hope the info below holds it's format well enough so you can see it. If anyone has any corrections, please post.

In FMP----------Other RDBMS----------Relational Theory

File---------------Table----------------------Entity

Field-------------Column-------------------Attribute

Records---------Rows---------------------Tuples

Relationships--Joins---------------------Links

Layout------------Object--------------------Element

Find---------------Query---------------------Query

Security Groups----------------------------Roles

Also, some other useful terms I've run across in my readings:
