- The word seems to be used most often in spoken language by students who have just completed a hard assignment. I have seen neither of these forms of the word “done” in writing before, which caused issues when I was trying to figure out how to spell them. The only known analogue is the comically exaggerated “broski” to refer to someone who is like a bro.
an exaggerated form of the colloquial use of the word “done”, meaning exhausted after completing a task
Etymology : “done” + “-zo” or “-ski”, “done” from its slang meaning and “-zo” and “-ski” both apparently made-up morphemes used to comically exaggerate the meaning of a word
