OEDCD is the name for a mental disorder characterized by the compulsive need to look things up in the Oxford English Dictionary (OED). The disorder is common among English graduate students. It is related to, but not always associated with, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The acronym stands for Oxford English Dictionary Compulsive Disorder.
Ryan's OEDCD got to the point where he wouldn't leave the house anymore, even for school, work or social engagements, because there was always one more word to look up in the OED.

An etad (pronounced e-tad) is an ambiguous encounter between two people that may or may not be a date. The word, derived from the spelling of "date" backwards, is typically used when one or both parties is/are uncertain whether the scheduled time together is a date, or how the other would classify it.
