the oxford sara dictionary | entry: garfunk.

8 March 2009


definition: a slightly off mood, similar to being “funky” and commonly misunderstood as depressed, but with more nostalgic wistfulness mixed in; necessarily accompanied (and often remedied) by the listening of guitar-based folk music, ala paul simon and art garfunkel.

part of speech: noun

use it in a sentence, please: sorry i seem sad, i’m just in kind of a garfunk today.

see also: garfunky, garfunkly adj.
usage: “i’m feeling kind of garfunky today.  can you turn up the bon iver, please?”

sighting: none*

* caveat: that just means i haven’t seen it, doesn’t mean it hasn’t existed elsewhere.  i’m only saying this once.
