Well, the above mentioned shortcuts are the standard ones you would find in most of the terminals. As a side node, I would like to say that you can actually customize these and set shortcuts you might prefer fr your system by tweaking the config file for your terminal or by using the GUI by chamging the preferences for your terminal.
