Pwn

compounding; verb
The act of totally dominating another person in some form of activity, most commonly in video games.
 
Pronounced like own, but with a p instead of an o. Origin of the word lies within this relationship between these two words. Most commonly used in computer gaming and on the internet.
Etymology : Comes from computer gaming. When someone wanted to type the word "own" to share with other gamers, often it would come out as "pwn" because the p and o key are right next to each other on the keyboard.
