Wednesday Word: Smeek

Smeek - noun or verb

I felt very proud of myself the other day smashing down smeeking on Words With Friends.

But, I didn't know the definition.

There's nothing sneaky about smeek--it's a Scottish word for smoke or fumes created by something burning or on fire. The fumes themselves are the noun and then the action of is an intransitive verb.
