  1. Synonym of schysst

Usage notes[edit]

Said in SAOL and SO to lean more towards fair and honest compared to schysst, and to mean "according to the rules" in sports, though "juste tackling" (fair tackle), given as an example, is rarer than "schysst tackling" when comparing Google hits. Somewhat obscure and likely to be understood as a pure synonym of schysst by many native speakers.
