'nuff

adjective; clipping
enough In addition to being clipped, the word 'nuff undergoes a spelling change, taking on a phonetic appearance. The change likens it more to a native word. The diction of the word also sounds more succinct than the word enough, physically indicating that the there is a sufficient amount of an object. More syllables seem to symbolize an excess that would turn enough into more than enough.
 
'nuff said.
Etymology : From Old English. clipping (e)nough
