kusi

  1. (possibly vulgar) urine, piss

Usage notes[edit]

The word was considered stylistically neutral up until the early 20th century, but has since come to be regarded as vulgar in certain contexts, leading to its replacement by virtsa in formal language. In colloquial and dialectal use, particularly among older generations, kusi may still be found neutral.
