faugh (dated) An exclamation of disgust, especially for a smell, or contempt. 1900 Mary Harriott Norris (editor), 1823 Walter Scott (author), Quentin Durward, American Book Company, page 24: The very scent of the carrion—faugh—reached my nostrils at the distance where we stood. 1960, P. G. Wodehouse, Jeeves in the Offing, chapter VII: It was a lovely afternoon, replete with blue sky, beaming sun, buzzing insects and what not, an afternoon that seemed to call to one to be out in the open with God's air playing on one's face and something cool in a glass at one's side, and here was I, just to oblige Bobbie Wickham, tooling along a corridor indoors on my way to search a comparative stranger's bedroom, this involving crawling on floors and routing under beds and probably getting covered with dust and fluff. The thought was a bitter one, and I don't suppose I have ever come closer to saying ‘Faugh!’
