and command-line mode, respectively. The "nore" part prevents the just
expanded right-hand-side ("group" in your case) from being immediately
used as the left-hand-side of a map. E.g., if you had defined
:iabbrev g group
:imap group <c-o>:echo "This is my group."<cr>
and you enter "g" and a space in insert mode, only the space would be
inserted into the buffer and the text "This is my group." would be
echoed on the command line.
