See, I told my parents all those years ago that comics were educational! I’ve just come across a word that’s new to me in an old Journey Into Fear.
“Lizzie! Where in tunket are ye?”
U.S. dial. or colloq.
Euphem. for hell; chiefly who (what, why, etc.) in tunket.
1871 Scribner’s Monthly II. 630 What in tunket are you making such a to-do about it for?
Latest cite is 1971, so I presume it’s still in use? Odd word. Have any of the American dialect dictionaries got anything on origin?
