What does huzzah mean?


Huzzah means "hooray" or "hurrah." It is a vintage exclamation of excitement that, in the past, was used primarily by soldiers and sailors.

These days, those who wish to put on airs or appear intellectual are most likely to pepper their speech with huzzahs. Others, however, just enjoy the rare double "z" sound huzzah contains. For those people, just thinking about the word huzzah might get them excited enough to exclaim it.


It's my birthday tomorrow. Huzzah!
Huzzah, indeed!

To get the most out of huzzah, stress both "z"s
