Case Study: No Word is an Island: Distinguishing “Nerd” and “Geek”

Part of the Cognitive Case Study Series from Cabrera Research Lab, this case
explores the distinction between the terms “nerd” and “geek” in qualitative and
quantitative terms. In the same way that all terminology (text) is conceptually
distinguished from other similar terminology (context), an exploration of the
nerd-geek distinction explicates the structure of distinction making.
