  • 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.

  • 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!

  • What is it? Is it like squeeze?

  • It works well as the past tense of squeeze. As in, "I squoze a lemon into my tea."

  • We need more strong verbs in English!

  • It works.

  • 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.")

  • So it's only in past tense, but it's also only transitive and active?

    Yeah. I like it.

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

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