S’Go: Shorthand for “Let us go”.
Usually used to drive movement, spoken in a quick manner to get things on track. S’Go is the verbal equivalent of a whip-crack, a fast way to tell your compadres that time is, indeed, of the essence.
Derivatives include applying the word to situations of a mental or ‘rah-rah’ standpoint, IE, “It’s S’Go time”, “S’Go for launch”, and the reprehensible “You S’Go girl!”
In a Sentence: “Rise of the Planet of the Apes starts in half-an-hour, S’Go!”
Unlike most Wordaholics entries, S’Go’s definition can be enhanced through repetition. Multiple uses of the word directly relate to the direness of the current situation the speaker finds themselves in.
- S’Go S’Go: Shorthand for “Let us go, in haste.” A double usage often indicates the user is moving in direct relation to someone chasing them.
In a Sentence: “I just stole a bottle of Bushmills from behind the bar, and I think the bouncer saw me, S’Go, S’Go.”
- S’Go S’Go S’Go: Shorthand for “Let us go, I smell smoke!” Triple usage most likely indicates that an event is happening that could affect the quality of life of the user, or a valued possession of theirs.
In a Sentence: “S’Go S’Go S’Go, they’re right behind us and one of them has a ball bat, they just shattered my Jeep’s windshield!”
- S’Go S’Go S’Go S’Go (ad infinitum): Shorthand for “Let us go, there’s a fire! In the room we are currently in!” or a similar equivalent. After triple usage, further repetition doesn’t necessarily mean that there is a greater danger, just that a danger great enough to cause intense panic has arisen. Or the speaker just likes the way it sounds.
In a Sentence: “S’Go S’Go S’Go S’Go, I pulled the pin from this grenade I found in Grandpa’s war memories box, then I dropped the grenade!!!!!!”
