    Betreff

    does the term "razzle" exist by itself

    Quellen
    or is it only used in connection with "dazzle"?
    And what exactliy does "razzle" by itself mean?
    Thanks for answering such a difficult question! ;-)

    To go out on the razzle is to get dressed up and have a big celebration out on the town.

    but the word "razzle" just by itself is not being used, is it?

    I only know razzle on its own in the context of going "out on the razzle" - i.e., having a jolly good night out on the town, visiting bars/pubs/clubs etc. (not, of course, speaking from personal experience of going out on the razzle...) - the OED describes it as "A boisterous or wildly riotous outing or celebration; a spree."

    A quick look on UK Google tells me that Razzle is also the title of a magazine, and "On the Razzle" is the title of a Tom Stoppard play.
