Word For The Day, Tuesday, April 3, 2012
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
a bit; a jot
[< Japanese sukoshi a little (bit) ]
Interesting from a Japanese root. I would have thought Yiddish.
so, like a smidge.
Yes. But I think you add a smidge of something to your recipe, while you move over a skosh to make room on the couch.
Ah, but a smidge and a skosh are still just a bissel.
My dad was a fantastic cook for all things asian, except kimchee, and was good at using just a skosh of soy sauce, something I’m not so good at, i always use what many consider way too much.
It’s a tidbot more than a smidge.
I fail to see what vacuum cleaners have to do with this word.
look who has risen up from the dead!
has anyone anywhere ever told you you were an @$$? ; )
I wasn’t very hungry, so I just had a kosher skosh nosh.
I’m sorry, I wasn’t listening.
It’s a long o, though, right?
Obama slinks leftward a skosh
(No surprise here that leftward means gauche)
“I’ll lead from the middle”
Then he moves left a little
He’s a Muslim, so he’s strictly not Kosh’
LOL...another great pun...mixing a Yiddish word for “a little bit” with an American Brand name. I WONDER if they are somehow related?
Doesn’t every Polak have an Uncle Skosh? Or, is that Uncle Stosh?
OshsKosh B’gosh clothes were cute back when the kids were littl’uns.
Stosh! aka Stanley! yep we all have had one at some point.
