  • Meaning: a very tiny amount, or a very tiny distance. Rhymes with "roach." Alternatively spelled skoach, scoach, or skoatch; possibly also scoche.

  • I thought the spelling was skosh.

  • The proper spelling appears to be skosh. Presumably this would rhyme with the first syllable of kosher. Scoatch appears to mean something slighly different, viz.: to prop up with a shim, chuck, or block (link). Thank you stpeter.
