Bleed - when any image is supposed to print off the page (it can be a background color, usually black or gray screen, or a photograph, black & white or color. It could be a bar that runs off on one side. If the ink is to print to the edge of the paper in any portion of the ad then it will be a "bleed."
Reverse - any time text is lighter than the background it is usually a reverse. (This does not refer to the orientation of the image at all.) Usually the text is white on a black/gray background.
Screen - in this publication, screens are used mostly for background. Usually someone requests either a light or dark gray background and since the book is produced with black ink, the only way to get a gray background is to screen the black ink.
