I know we’ve got some geeks here. What do you all think?
I know I’ve linked to this in another thread here somewhere, but to me “geek” has always been a noun, and its relationship to “nerd” and “dweeb” and “dork” is aptly defined by this diagram:
But if somebody wants to try verbifying that noun, I say go right ahead and see if it catches on. Not like there’s any dearth of precedents. Personally, I doubt that “to geek” will ever make it into the dictionaries, given the ambiguity surrounding the meaning of the noun (Venn diagram notwithstanding).
I have used “geeky” as an adjective though.
