wtf does the verb "sook" mean?
/sʊk/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [sook] Show IPA
Use sook in a Sentence
1. Australia and New Zealand. a timid, cowardly person, esp. a young person;
2. Midland U.S. (used to summon cows from the pasture).
1890–95; prob. from earlier sense “calf reared by hand,” perh. suck(-calf),
with sp. repr. N England, Scots pron. of suck (but earliest cited pron. of
sook is (so̅o̅k))
Sometimes English drives me crazy.
