Several attempts to produce internationally accepted terminologies and definitions of 'oral precancer' have appeared in the literature. World Health Organizations (WHO) in 1972 subdivided 'precancer' into 'lesions' and 'conditions' with their definitions. Recent working group of WHO is not in favor of such subdivision and recommended the use of the term 'oral potentially malignant disorder (OPMD)'. This is mainly attributed to the recent advancement in molecular and genetic aspects of 'oral precancer'. But efforts to define OPMDs are few in the literature. 'Oral precancer' is ultimately colligated to oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). With this semantics in mind, different OPMD and related terminologies in the literature used till date with their lexicographic analysis have been reviewed in the present paper. Attempt has also been made to propose desirable terminology and definition which suits to the current concept of OPMD. The proposed terminology and definition is based on the authors' opinions with a hope for further suggestions from readers.
