nix

Definitions

Slang

  • noun no, nothing, none. One of very few German words to enter the thieves’ and low-life cant of the early 19th century and remain in occasional use. Nichts is the standard German for nothing or not, nix being a colloquial version.
  • verb to forbid, veto. This form of the word is predominantly American, its brevity recommending it to journalese usage.
