Also, nobody but someone who doesn't get Alien movies talks about a xenomorph.
I don't understand this. That nomenclature comes directly from the second film. I guess you could argue the character who said it doesn't get Alien movies, in the sense that he didn't know he was in an Alien movie?
The 'nomenclature' as you call it was an in-film joke, as the marines immediately demonstrated.
New one on me - so what do we call them, oh oracle of correct naming? I wouldn't wish to appear like a n00b in such discussions.
