Illustration for article titled Word of the Day: iToff/i

Good evening and welcome to Word of the Day! A journey through the English vocabulary and the words that piqued my interest, in WotD we'll be learning a new word for each working day of the week, bar holidays, unless there's a holiday special...


Today's word is:


|täf| Brit. informal, derogatory


A rich or upper-class person.

ORIGIN: mid 19th cent.: perhaps an alteration of tuft, used to denote a gold tassel worn on the cap by titled undergraduates at Oxford and Cambridge.
