scooch

verb; compounding
to move into another location or position by crouching and/or squeezing. Several alterations have formed from the word “crouch.” These include “scrooch” and “scooge.” Some dictionaries do not list either word, but one can easily denote the similarity to the words “crouch” and “squeeze.” It is not an exact blend, but certain pronunciations are shared. In context, “scooch” effectively conveys the idea of moving and squeezing.
