RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

The definition of "Squoze" - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam. Note: The RF Cafe Forums were reconstituted in April 2021!

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi all,

I was reading on another engineering forum (can I give the name? Eng-Tips.com) recently about the use of the word "squoze." You have probably heard it used as the past-tense of "squeeze." That post, if I remember correctly, talked about a lawyer using it in the courtroom.

A lot of recently coined words and phrases tend to make it into the dictionaries rather quickly, but I cheked Dictionary.com and it doesn't have a listing for squoze yet. MiriamWebster.com actually lists it, but you have to pay to read it. Bartelby says, "is a Nonstandard dialectal form of the weak verb squeeze, used jocularly in Casual contexts in place of the Standard past tense or past participle form, squeezed. Analogy with the past tense of freeze, froze, probably accounts for it."

I personally never use the word "squoze." I think is make you sound ignorant. Anybody else have an opinion?
