Pronounced: mass-TEEZH (alt: mass-TEEJ), noun/adj

Notes: My guess was way off one this word

Yesterday’s word

The word lunker means “something very large compared to others of its kind; a very large fish”

First usage

The word showed up in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

This word showed up in America, so it is thought to be an Americanism, but the origin is not known.
