manky

Definition

Slang

  • adjective grotty, disgusting or distasteful. A 1960s vogue word, mainly in middle-class usage. The word had existed previously in working-class speech: it may be an invention influenced by ‘mangy’, ‘cranky’, ‘wonky’, etc., or a corruption of the french manqué (lacking, failed). It is still used in northern England where its usual sense is naughty or spoilt.
