Icelandic[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From the verb fokka (to loiter, loaf around).

Noun[edit]

fokk n

  1. the act of loitering; pointless hanging about or fiddling with something
Synonyms[edit]

Etymology 2[edit]

From the English expletive fuck.

Interjection[edit]

fokk!

  1. (vulgar) fuck
Usage notes[edit]

This expletive is much milder than fuck in English, and is usually not considered taboo, although it is very informal and mainly used by younger people (<30). Compare with sjitt, which has a longer history in the language and is much more likely to be heard from middle-aged Icelanders.
