My definintions:

submachine gun - a fully automatic shoulder fired weapon using pistol calibre ammunition

carbine/assault rifle - a short barreled rifle firing ammo of larger calibre and energy than pistol ammo, but smaller than (or cut down) battlerifle ammo - may be semi or full auto

rifle/battlerifle - long barrelled weapon firing large ammo.
