The abridged pronunciation of "exclaimation point."
A word indicating excitement or alarm.
Background: This word was necessitated by attempts to read scripted dialog in which surprise was indicated using "!" or "!!!" out loud. First adopted by screenplay writers, its public usage began with the excessive usage of the exclamation point in RPG dialog. The facilitation of the pronunciation of the exclaimation point, as well as the onamotopoetic character lent by the word, allowed its use in everyday conversation.
Lich Lord: "No, AAMOF
it is the runtling behind you who bears your ancestors' secrets."
Main Character: "Xanth!"
H. L. Mencken realizing how much he has written over the course of his lifetime: "Xanth!"
