Who the hell says "Oh My Goddess?" —This unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Is it ever written in all caps? I don't recall ever seeing it used like this... 16:21, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

I use it capitalized, but yes, it is often lowercase-only. The early Wiktionary convention was to capitalize all abbreviations, acronyms and initialisms. --Connel MacKenzie 16:26, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

oh my goodnessEdit

What about “Oh my goodness”? It seems to me that is much more common than “oh my goddess”.


DON'T put the actual f word on there! Put f*** or f---!

Why? This is a dictionary. We want to tell people what words mean, not obscure the meaning. --EncycloPetey 23:44, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Feedback: Swedish usage(s)Edit

Regarding Swedish "OMG" adjective-form. ("...Abbreviation of omogen (immature)...") (Now, I haven't looked into the Wiktionary guidelines, so this might be superfluous.)

Never ever heard of it. The main use is the initialism-form afaik. As an initialism it's heavily used slang in Sweden, online and verbally, and with the same meaning as in English. Just mentioning because: If you know some Swedish and are about to say something using slang, I really wouldn't recommend something like... (example)

"OMG!!! Han är SÅ omg!"
("OMG!!! He is SO immature!")

...since: If not all, most would wonder what the h*ck you're saying! :) It would be interpreted as:

"OMG!!! He is SO omg!" :D

If you were to encounter the English equivalent above, you too would probably wonder "What the...?!"
(Ignoring lack of adjective-form equivalent in English.) "IMT"? :P
