Is Op a word? Op meaning



Definition: Slang or familiar term for operation, referring to either medical surgery or military maneuvers.

For many of us, the word OP immediately conjures up the op-ed page of The New York Times, thus relegating it to the list of abbreviations banned by Scrabble. But in reality, OP is indeed a word, and a popular one at that. Admittedly, in its medical sense OP is far more popular in the UK, where it's used to refer to a past, present or future surgical procedure. This is understandable, because there's something far more friendly and cozy about the word OP compared to the cold, clinical, sinister-sounding "operation."

In the armed forces, OP is also short for "military operation" and is a popular way to denote a variety of military maneuvers.

Ways to use OP in a sentence:

  • "My Dad's having his op tomorrow."
  • "Have you recovered from your op yet?"
  • "The company was engaged in a military op that lasted several days."
