The Global Language Monitor a California-based company that analyzes the latest trends in word usage around the world claims that the word Obama, in its many variations, is the latest word to enter the English language.
Usage of the word, referring to Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama, include Obamarama, which refers to the entire Obama phenomenon.
Obamanomics is the word used to describe Obamas master plan for the American economy.
Obamamania is what happens when Obamas legions of political fans rally, scream, and faint for him, just like groupies would for a rockstar.
Obamacize and Obamafy are ways of making something more Obama-like.
The words Obamamentum, ObamaNation, Obamican, and Obamacam are also creeping into the English language thanks to the Illinois Senators campaigning.
