pogchamp

noun; acronym
Exclamation of “hype” or excitement popularized by the streaming site Twitch. “POG” is commonly believed to be an acronym of “play of the game.” This acronym has since been paired with “champ,” a shortened version of champion. Together, this compound roughly means great play/move.
 
This term serves as an example of a combination of different word formations. The “POG” acronym has been seen in the gaming community since the early 2000s, but the “champ” appears to have been recently added to create a new word. Oddly enough, “pogchamp” is now being shortened to “POG,” although this new term keeps the meaning of “pogchamp,” not the original acronym.
Etymology : “POG” acronym meaning play of the game + “champ” from shortened version of champion, origins in Old French
Source : “Pogchamp everybody!” (Twitch streamer TommyInnit, August 2020).
