You know about the Emacs Lisp Reference Manual, right?  If you go to
the index node, and sort by the second column you should get
something close to what you're looking for, e.g.

* abbrev-all-caps:                       Abbrev Expansion.
* abbrev-expansion:                      Abbrev Expansion.
* abbrev-prefix-mark:                    Abbrev Expansion.
* abbrev-start-location:                 Abbrev Expansion.
  ...
* yes-or-no-p:                           Yes-or-No Queries.
* yes-or-no questions:                   Yes-or-No Queries.
* y-or-n-p-with-timeout:                 Yes-or-No Queries.
* y-or-n-p:                              Yes-or-No Queries.
