Today’s WotD is:

stonker
• noun
Brit. Informal something very large or impressive of its kind.
DERIVATIVES stonking adjective.
ORIGIN from military slang stonk a concentrated artillery bombardment.


Stonker or Stonking is another of those wonderful all purpose slang words. It means large or impressive (eg: Diana had a stonking great diamond ring) or it can also mean fantastic or wonderful (eg: we had a stonking time at the party)

Another newer meaning is to find someone sexually attractive (eg: That Orlando is F’ing stonking!). It can also generally be used as an intensifier, in much the same way as bloody or flipping … to emphasize how great something is.

Have a stonking Wednesday!
