Enhancing functions of j & wp
In Joomla component is an extra piece of software that has is own control panel to handle the different options within such a function. A module is to place some information on a certain position (determinded by the template) to show on the front-page. Plugins are mostly extra functions that create or deliver new back-end functions like a different WYSIWYG Editor.
In WordPress you see Plugins that will do the same functions as in Joomla, some give your more back-end controls like the Robots Meta plugin
Widgets are more like the Modules in Joomla, you can show pieces of information on a separate position, also determined by the Theme of your WordPress installation.
