BTW: "stick" is an english word lol
What does "stik" actually translate to in English? I've assumed "stick", but I could be horribly wrong...

Stik vs. Stick
Well I looked at some other material (E.g. the Danish "Badmintonbogen"), which agree with both Gollum's and lcleing's approach. Also it better fit with what I have original learned and how other DK players that I know use the term.
Also I have found some other small mistakes for the first source I reffered to, and I have been told it was made in a rush, so I conclude that this materiale was, to express it nicely, not "precise" enough!
Sorry for the confusion. I would though say that the term is a bit tricky, if you do 95%, 65% or 7,39226938151(lol)% of a full smash, when is it then a "Stik"smash!?
Gollum: Concerning the translation of the term, then "Stik" can mean sereval things, so it could be misleading to translate it into stick, just like that!
In English stick refer to some kind of relative long and narrow form, for instance made of wood!
In Danish Stik can at least mean:
(1a) Body, when the nurse put the needle in your skin, or if a bee bites/sting you, which makes this red scracthy thing on your skin!
(1b) In relation to that, it is also used for emotions - somthing that hurts: a "Stik" in my heart...
(2) Games, Playing cards or childrens memory game, in english I believe you call it a "trick"?
(3) Orientation, Refering to a direction/line, like to get there you should go straight ahead(stik) (- in that direction).
(4) Attitude - If you disagree, like having the exactly opposite opinion, Stik is used emphazise the diametrically aspect of it.
(5) Electronics, a connector, plug, like the one you put into a power supply! In english I guess you use the term an "USB-stick", because of the form of these things, though in Danish we use the term "USB-Stik", because of the connector thing. But Danes very fast adopt from English, so because of this intervention, for the future I believe that Stik is more likely to include the meaning of a stick.
(Well, this is not in the dictionary, but also a specific part of the male body, can be referred to as a Stik, not that common though, and I am not sure whether it refers to the form or the plug thing, lol.)
Here you can find some examples of the use of the word: http://www.ordbogen.com/opslag.php?word=stik&dict=auto

Hmm I could defend the term in relation to at least 1), 2) and 3) to some extent...
Though I did not relate it to "sharp", that is an interesting veiw!
Just to be sure concerning 1), "Stik" does not refer to the sharpness of the needle, but the little feeling you get as it meets the skin (prick)! Thereby the term does NOT automatically include the "shock" effect, that some people get, eventhough they know what is going to happen, lol.
Also 2) is interesting, because it can relate to the use of it. You need to "pair" it to get the point! On the other hand it does not tells anything about the technical aspect!

Also I did not find "FingerPower", which is an exaggerated movement of the standard paired lose-tight grip motion, often used with the Netkill/Tap! It is done by making a little gap in your hand/palm.

You are probably talking about the "Attacking Clear". Perhaps, we shall say that "Attacking Clear" = "Punch Clear".
Regarding "Finger Power", I remember reading a post/thread from kwun about it some 3 years ago. Please allow me time to search for it. Maybe kwun can direct us to this thread of his.

Whipping Backhand Lift
In another thread, a stroke was described/shown;
Some call it the 'Whipping Underarm Backhand Clear' or the 'Whipping Backhand Lift'.
* Whipping Backhand Lift = An underarm Clear executed from the Back Tram Lines whipping the shuttlecock high to opponent's Back Tram Lines.
Do Bcers have a different name/term for this stroke?

I didn't see "forehand/reverse-forehand overhead sliced dropshot" in the list.
Hope that helps

Sliced Flat Clear
You are welcome to add more terms to our list.
Thanks for mentioning about the 'Sliced Flat Clear'.
For players who have not heard of this term before, we could term it as;
* Sliced Flat Clear = A Punch Clear executed with spin to the shuttlecock; to slow it down quicker after passing over the receiver.
