yomp

Definitions

Military

Slang

  • verb to tramp across rough country wearing or carrying heavy equipment. This item of arcane military slang became known to the general public at the time of the war between Britain and Argentina over the Falkland Islands in 1981. The word is now used, by non-military hikers and others, more or less as a synonym for ‘trek’. It is either an invented blend, influenced by words like ‘tramp’, ‘hump’, ‘stomp’ and ‘jump’, or an imitation of the sound of boots slamming into muddy ground.
