A person who knows almost everything about the subjects that interest them, but who have poor or non-existant social skills AND no fashion sense.

Commonly confused with geek and dork, but is different.
"My math teacher has been single for 8 years. Considering he always wears plaid shirts and striped pants with floral neckties, I understand it. Who would want to date a nerd like that?"

A person who does not fit in with most of mainstream society because of their apperence (usually glasses, zits, allergies etc.), interests and behaviour, but have a high amount of kowledge in things not always considered 'cool' i.e. anime, warhammer, dungeons and dragons.
Contrary to rumour nerds often have quite good social skills, but only within their own circle of friends. They are usually happier than average because they are less worried about conforming to the majority.

Not to be confused with the geek.
A geek discovered a use for electricity. A geek invented the computer. A geek invented the internet.

A nerd invented World of Warcraft.

1. A person who wears oversized glasses with a safety strap, a shirt tucked into his pants (worn at or a little above the waist), a belt AND suspenders (just incase), ripped underwear (just incase =P), and a pocket protector. These creatures are often found in places such as libraries, schools, and bookstores. They have high IQ's and grades range from 98-school max. They are victums of being picked on by societies "cool kids" who will usually beat them up and give them wedgies.

2. According to M. Night Shamylan's Signs, they are people who have never had a girlfriend and create signs in crop fields to scare people.
Man, you're such a nerd!

someone who's simply smart doesn't mean he's a nerd godammit! A nerd is an anti-social moron who doesn't like sports, music and girls. A nerd dedicates his life to wasting it by studying for no reason, and doesn't even have any fashion tastes.
A kid with broken glasses fixed with masking tape, short pants with a tucked in shirt and underwear with cartoons on 'em, and a frikkin' name tag on his shirt. Wtf man?

A person who has a warped sense of what is cool relative to the widely accepted norms. As a result they're often "intensely interested in a particular hobby or topic".
Example... that depends on what you think are widely accepted norms.
