- (Canada, euphemistic) The finger (obscene gesture).

- This term, in all its forms, is commonly used as an arthrous proper noun (as in the Trudeau salute), but use as a singular common noun (as in a Trudeau salute) is also adequately attested. However, the common noun's expected plural form Trudeau salutes is all but unattested, and may be considered more or less hypothetical.
