Please do not re-nominate for verification without comprehensive reasons for doing so.

All three senses. Google print search yields many scanning errors for "WORK" but none of these meanings seem attested. --Connel MacKenzie T C 22:43, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

No Google print hits, probably because it's slang/jargon. Last I checked, we weren't excluding slang and jargon. My programmer roommate wouldn't shut up until I entered this one. He assures me that his colleagues at work use it regularly. I shall ask for attestation, and meanwhile offer [1], [2] (yes UrbanDict comes up first, but that doesn't make it non-existent in 337K hits), [3], among others. --Dvortygirl 05:23, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Been on rfv too long. Please add further comment here, and citations on the article page. Andrew massyn 20:28, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Keep sufficient google hits to warrant inclusion. Andrew massyn 20:28, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
Sounds to me like the plaintive wail of a lone duck lost in the moors. Hork!!! Hork!!! Hoooooork!!! BD2412 T 20:54, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
Sense I'm used to, oddly not appearing there, is 'vomit', 'expectorate'; appears in an episode of Futurama in this sense (whence references to porpoise hork). —Muke Tever 14:11, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
Keep. We use this /all/ the time at work.

"Vomit, cough up" sense[edit]

I added this sense since it is mentioned in both the etymology and usage notes. I've never heard it, so if it was removed for a reason those references should be removed too. Andrew Sheedy (talk) 18:18, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

It should be hawk or hawk up, I think. Equinox 18:26, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
