She parked so close that I was squoze between the car door and the truck next to us and couldn't get out.

"Don't tell me you snuck into father's laboratory!""Yes, goosewit," said Yorick, "and I invented a new potion. But when I tasted it, za-zing! I was no bigger than a cockroach. So I squoze under the door and here I am!"- William Steig, The Toy Brother

It's a very cute word. Especially in umpteen-point Palatino, as it is. Sassy, yet authoritative, yet ridiculous.

Excellent, rocks. This only adds more proof to my claim that madeupical words are sometimes better than real ones. :-)

So it's only in past tense, but it's also only transitive and active?Yeah. I like it.

Yes, I've always used it as the past tense of squeeze. It just fits better than squeezed in most cases (an exception being "squeezed in between").Examples:"Who squoze the juice?""She squoze all the water from the washcloth.""I squoze my eyes shut." (But I'd still say, "My eyes were squeezed shut.")

We need more strong verbs in English!
It works well as the past tense of squeeze. As in, "I squoze a lemon into my tea."
What is it? Is it like squeeze?
I'm with you, rocks. This is an awesome word.Actually, I mistyped word as "worrd," and decided that's a good one too. So thanks!
I've been saying this all my life. I totally believed it was unmadeupical until a few years ago when multiple friends started hassling me to produce a published dictionary definition.I've been pouting ever since.
