Pronounced: ih-VEN-chuh-wate, verb
Notes: Another word that I didn’t recognize, but should have figured out
The word oscar means “cash”.
Background / Comments
As noted yesterday, this is rhyming slang named for Oscar Ashe, who was an Australian actor, directory, and writer. I had never heard of Oscar Ashe, so I couldn’t “unwind” the rhyming slang.
This word came into usage in the early 1900s.
