Pronounced: tran(t)s-PAHN-tine, adj
Notes: This is an interesting word (in addition to the regular meaning, there is a British meaning)
The word catchpenny means, as a noun, “something that’s designed to sell quickly”. As an adjective, it means “relating to something designed to sell quickly: cheap, flashy, or sensationalistic”
Background / Comments
I thought that this word referred to a miser or miserly. It is a shortening of the phrase “catch a penny”. It is another tosspot word.
This word began to be used in the mid-1700s
