"Augments" - "wtf is an augmert?"
Oh, don't be ridiculous. Nobody knew what a Jedi was in 1977, but the movie defined the term. It's a fallacy that an audience can only understand a reference if they've seen some earlier work that used it. As long as the term is defined within the film itself, it can be understood, regardless of prior familiarity.
