In my life, yo.

Sure it is.

I just looked up the etymology - interesting, and possibly a bit xenophobic.

“awkward, ungainly,” 1759, from gawk hand “left hand” (1703), perhaps a contraction of gaulick, thus “gaulish hand,” derogatory slang that could have originated during some period of strained Anglo-French relations, i.e. most of recorded history.

My standard starters are anime and gourd. I looked at the remaining letters and tried gawks and was surprised and went “I guess it can be an adverb too?” based on the remaining letters.

I have, and you still beat me :-)

I failed. Very little to work with.

I was thinking of the root word, gawk (stare at) and wondering how it can be so different from gawky. Turns out there’s a noun for gawk (an awkward or shy person. “let those country gawks dance to their hearts’ content”), the usage of which i have never heard, like ever.

I used that, I did get it done by the final guess. Tough one.

I think there’s also the idea that the person that is the adjective is doing the verb.

New one.
