Catalan[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From archaic Catalan tocar (touch) el (the) dos (back).

tocar el dos

  1. to get lost; to beat it

Usage notes[edit]

Because dos is an obsolete spelling of dors (back), the literal meaning is sometimes interpreted as "touch the two" by those not aware of the history.
