They have never used the word "zombie" during the show.
Yeah, the show is taken place at modern times so they would be aware of that term. I guess ever since Rick heard the term "Walker" from Morgan he's just kept it as is. Along with other people coming up with their own silly little nicknames like "Geeks", "Biters" ect.
In The Walking Dead universe movies like Dawn of The Dead were never made so "zombies" are not a part of the pop culture like it is on our world. To the Walking Dead characters they are experiencing zombies for the first time.
Yes, in an interview I read with one of the writers they confirmed that zombie media is non-existent.
"Geeks," is my favourite term for the dead. I may have to start using that in real life.
Separate names with a comma.
