or the guy who put it up cuz he's only hadda handful of edits. yeah. I hate when apparent newbies show up at w:'pedia, too. anyway, word. I'm sure a google search does confirm. also talking to kids today would corroborate. I'm for real here. people use it. that's basically where it came from. hit up my talk if you don't believe me. thanks, IshMcdzznology 04:17, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

citations, regional? Multiple senses seem to overlap. The "adverb" and "adjective" would be indistinguishable from "-ish" in speech, so we need print citations. Is there a citable missing noun (="shit")? DCDuringTALK 12:19, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
New citation of this word usage:
Using -ish in a non-standard way as in "Good(ish) News from Procter & Gamble: No Ad Cutback Here"
I can not find evidence in b.g.c. (fiction} [423 raw hits for "ish"] for the purported adjective and interjection. Most hits are eye dialect for "is" (ish#Etymology 1), the proper nickname "Ish", and the ubiquitous adverbial development of the suffix ish#Adverb, but for which I have found only 2 cites in standalone use. I'd be inclined to keep the adverb and mention the potential broader use in usage notes. DCDuringTALK 12:30, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
RFV failed, adjective and interjection sections removed. —RuakhTALK 20:15, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
