Definition funny of Posh:
very classy or sophisticated
The word means rich, aristocratic, wealthy, loaded, fancy, toff, toffee nosed, upper crust, well off, or well to do. The origin of this word actually derives from an old Romany Gypsy slang word for pennies, i.e. if you've a lot of pennies you're well to do, rich, etc. In this light, the word posh can be used as a term of light hearted derision. Please note: a wrong but often repeated even on this website is the urban myth is that the word POSH orginated from Port Out Starboard Home - based on based on the position of the more expensive cabins on a passenger ships from England to India - but this is actually nonesense whch has been commonly repeated.
She looks really posh with that new pearl necklace. Have you seen her beatiful bone china tea set, it is really posh. She must be quite posh to have sent her children to Eton School. She talks quite posh.
one of the spice girls, one of very few people in the world who from different camera angles can look white, asian, or hispanic
posh spice is really hot
A popular definition seems to be that P.O.S.H was printed on tickets for P&O cruise ships in the early 20th century leaving India. These tickets were for the more desirable rooms which put you on the Port side going out and the Starboard side returning home as it kept you out of the sun and kept the room cool. However, no tickets have ever been found which had P.O.S.H on the ticket. Sources: www.wikipedia.org www.askoxford.com www.phrases.org.uk I suggest that the mistake has been made from the full name of the Cruise Liner: Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company. Maybe a printing error produced P.O.S.H rather than P.O.S.N.C A more factual defintion still derives from a shipping term which does not seem to be suggested on the previous source sites. When boats leave a harbour the shipping lanes work to the rule that you must stay to the left hand side like on U.K roads. When leaving a harbour you therefore keep the Port lights of the shipping lane on the left and the Starboard on the right. However, when returning you keep the starboard lights on the left and the Port lights on the right. Hence Port Out Starboard Home... P.O.S.H
