Word of the Day for Thursday, June 7, 2012

natch \nach\, adverb:

Of course; naturally.

Yes, well, your father, who has no humanitarian instincts, is already designing a computer program to put the Lever process on automatic. For a small fee, natch.

— Dana Stabenow, Second Star

Natch is a shortening and respelling of the common English word naturally.


I hate this word. Who says this? Gross. I’m really irritated that this is in the dictionary. It’s ugly, it sounds vulgar but isn’t, it caps off a sentence with an unnecessary final syllable, I just found a cicada inside my shirt, and I hate dealing with other people’s time management/project management deficiencies, natch. Ew.
