English - Etymology 1

Of uncertain origin. Possibly from the application of the sense _punk_ (“rotten wood dust used as tinder”) (see below) to anything worthless (that sense being attested since 1869), and then to any undesirable person (since 1908). The word is alternatively sometimes suggested to derive from Spanish _pu(n)to_ (“prostitute”); this is supported by the sense development (it originally meant "prostitute", then "bottom, catamite"), but is phonologically unstraightforward. NOUN PUNK (_countable and uncountable_, _plural_ PUNKS) * (obsolete, countable) A prostitute; courtezan. * 1604, William Shakespeare, _Measure for Measure_, V.i. My lord, she may be a PUNK; for many of them are neither maid, widow, nor wife. * 1663: Samuel Butler, _Hudibras_. And made them fight, like mad or drunk, For Dame Religion, as for PUNK. * (countable, uncommon) The bottom in a male-male sexual relationship, _especially_ in prison. [since the 19th century] _Because he was so weak, Vinny soon became Tony's PUNK._ * 1946, Mezz Mezzrow & Bernard Wolfe, _Really the Blues_, Payback Press 1999, p. 15: A PUNK, if you want it in plain English, is a boy with smooth skin who takes the place of a woman in a jailbird's love life. * (countable) A juvenile delinquent; a young, petty criminal or trouble-maker; a hoodlum; a hooligan. * (countable) Any worthless person. * 1971, Harry Julian Fink, R.M. Fink, Dean Riesner, _Dirty Harry_ I know what you're thinking, PUNK. You're thinking, "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, I've forgotten myself in all this excitement. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? / Well, do ya, PUNK? * (uncountable) A social and musical movement rooted in rebelling against the established order. * (uncountable) The music of the punk movement, known for short songs with electric guitars, strong drums, and a direct, unproduced approach. * (countable, sometimes as informal plural punx) A person who belongs to that movement and/or listens to that music, a punk rocker. USAGE NOTES The most common use of the term is in the term _punk rock_ (for a certain social and musical movement). In the UK, this is the only common usage. TRANSLATIONS ADJECTIVE PUNK (_comparative_ PUNKER, _superlative_ PUNKEST) * Of, from, or resembling the punk subculture. _You look very PUNK with your t-shirt, piercing and chains._ VERB PUNK (_third-person singular simple present_ PUNKS, _present participle_ PUNKING, _simple past and past participle_ PUNKED) * To pimp. _Tony PUNKED-OUT Vinny when he was low on smokes._ * To forcibly perform anal sex upon an unwilling partner. _Ricky PUNKED his new cell-mates._ * To prank. _I got expelled when I PUNKED the principal._ * (especially with "out") To give up or concede; to act like a wimp. _Jimmy was going to help me with the prank, but he PUNKED (out) at the last minute._ USAGE NOTES The relatively tame 21st century usage of _punk_ to mean "prank" was popularized by the American television show Punk'd. Until as recently as the late 20th century, _punk_ still connoted rape or submitting to anal rape (_punk-out_). The second use of the term _punk-out_ is now comparable to acting like a _pussy_ and mildly implies submissive behavior in general. SYNONYMS * see Wikisaurus:prostitute DERIVED TERMS
