Source for construction industry lingo?

Can anyone point me to a resource where I can learn construction industry-related lingo?

I'm a defense attorney and I've recently been pulled onto a few cases involving accidents on construction sites. There is a lot of terminology tossed around in the documents I'm reviewing, and I could use some help making sense of it.

(For example, I'd been trying to determine the difference between a pettibone and a lull, only to finally figure out they are two brands of forklifts, not two types of equipment).

Any book or website suggestions would be appreciated!

This is a construction glossary that I keep bookmarked, and have found to be pretty useful. It doesn't get in to the heavier stuff as much, though.
