I was looking for an equivalent to "hinter etwas kommen" and LEO returned "suss".
I had never heard nor read this word before, and so I intended to ask in Sprachlabor whether other people - especially residents of the UK - were familiar with this word. But first I took the time to consult my Shorter Oxford Dictionary of English.
And there it was, complete with more than one defintion. I suppose I should have cancelled my effort at that point.
The word is still foreign to me. But the entry at answers.com is helpful.
tr.v. Slang., sussed, suss·ing, suss·es.
1. To infer or discover; figure out: “I think I'm good at sussing out what's going on” (Ry Cooder).
2. To size up; study: “Suss out the designers in whom you are interested” (Lucia van der Post).
I also managed to find examples of usage with http://ixquick.com/
So I guess I have sussed out
what suss is all about.
Good luck in the coming year.
Thank you for your patience.
