Jagoff Added To Dictionary


This should've happened AGES ago, in my opinion!

Beloved Pittsburghese word, JAGOFF, has officially been added to the Oxford English Dictionary!!!!

And according to what it's listed as at oxforddictionaries.com, the definition is SPOT. ON.

jagoff (noun) - (chiefly in western Pennsylvania) a stupid, irritating, or contemptible person.


AND - the example sentences they have are RIDICULOUS: 

  • ‘First of all, I would like to say that he is just a total jagoff.’
  • ‘I'm hardly ever sick, I get along with pretty much everyone who isn't a total jagoff, I don't mind working late, and I'm ridiculously loyal.’​
  • ‘It might just be the jagoff in the computer terminal next to you, but you're competing!’​

I'm not too sure what that last one is, but not bad Oxford English Dictionary, not bad!!

NOW - which Pittsburghese word should we try and get in there next?? lololol
