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.
