Necrophilia - the art of manipulating a disc while it has low or no spin. This term is explained most succinctly in the first issue of PAW magazine.

Nesting - a two handed airbrush technique in which one hand hits the disc tangentially while the other hand supports the disc with a tipping or fluffing technique. Larry Imperiale is the Big Bird of Nesting.

Neurons - a one handed turnover that is an amalgamation of a simple one handed turnover, a skid and a crank. Invented by Bob Coleman, this move brought on a virtual onslaught of one handed turnover experimentation in the 1980's that still influences modern players.

Oliver, Olivia - This is hard to describe, but the Oliver is a close cousin of the bad attitude posture. I believe this catch has the smallest window of execution of any freestyle catch with the exception of the Monster/Shemingitis/Fibrosis. Essentially, this posture is performed by sliding your arm in behind the crook of your bent knee. Keep your wrist in this bend, raise the bent leg off the ground, bend your wrist back so that your hand and fingers are over your ankle. A true oliver requires that the disc lie flat against the leg during the catch. An Olivia is an easier version where you catch the rim of disc, but the disc sticks out from the catch point instead of staying flush against the leg.

Osis - Osis is a modification of a catch posture by the addition of a pirouette which causes the disc to be in a blind spot during the most critical phase of the catch. For example, modify a rh, rl flamingo by adding a counterclockwise (i.e. spin your body to the left) pirouette just as the disc is approaching your catch hand. The counterclockwise pirouette causes you to have your back pointed at the disc just as it is approaching, thus making the disc more of a blind catch. Such a flamingo is called a flamingosis. You can modify a "posted" gitis in the same manner to produce a gitosis. If you have an opportunity to watch Pat Carrasco play, then you will see a spinning gitosis performed beautifully. Personally, my favorite OSISified catch is an oliviosis...an Olivia with the osis modification, it has all the elements of difficult: contortion, small catch window and the osis modification. The osis modification is generally attributed to the fertile mind of John Kirkland.

OWF (Overhand wrist flip) - This throw always evokes curiousity from the onlooker, perhaps because it looks so awkward yet has such a beautiful flight. The grip is rather straightforward, but the hyzer required by the throw is usually a little difficult for the beginner. The grip is formed by hooking your thumb around and under the rim with the other fingers placed on top of the disc, running parallel to the flight rings. Righthanded jammers use the OWF to generate a counterclockwise throw with lots of spin.
