that forms in insular
groups of geeks
An LGD differs from a Standard Geek Dialect
in that it's much more specialized, different, or otherwise unique
. Also, LGDs must be localized
, or unique to a certain group, subculture, or discussion forum.
LGDs usually revolve around small, insular communities such as LAN parties
, quake clans
, bulletin board services
, open source
projects, and user groups
. This is a marked contrast to SGDs which typically are spawned by vastly larger communities.
