Hi all,

I was reading on another engineering forum (can I give the name? Eng-Tips.com) recently about the use of the word "squoze." You have probably heard it used as the past-tense of "squeeze." That post, if I remember correctly, talked about a lawyer using it in the courtroom.

A lot of recently coined words and phrases tend to make it into the dictionaries rather quickly, but I cheked Dictionary.com and it doesn't have a listing for squoze yet. MiriamWebster.com actually lists it, but you have to pay to read it. Bartelby says, "is a Nonstandard dialectal form of the weak verb squeeze, used jocularly in Casual contexts in place of the Standard past tense or past participle form, squeezed. Analogy with the past tense of freeze, froze, probably accounts for it."

I personally never use the word "squoze." I think is make you sound ignorant. Anybody else have an opinion?
