Pronounced: KYOO-buht, noun
Notes: Anyone with some familiarity with the Bible probably knows this word, but this is one that I found the background interesting.
The word titfer is rhyming slang for “hat”
Background / Comments
As in the case with rhyming slang, there is a fairly well-know expression (tit for tat); hat rhymes with tat, and, with compression, what’s left becomes titfer.
This word showed up around 1925.
