It depends on categorie. There is no REAL standard list.

Some morphs have a protocol called event handling or geometry. Some  
Other objects never need event handling.

Another often used protocol is initialization. Or testing.  But its  
not part of the language.
Its part of the environment. Just check squeaks class library to get  
inspiration for naming.

I does. But only a few ones. Just create your owns if there is  
nothing else fitting.
