    The word muster means to produce something.
    You muster up means to generate something
    e.g she finally mustered up the courage to aski him for more money.

    The verb "to muster" has the meaning of to gather in a group someone/something. So sheep in New Zealand are not rounded up, but mustered.

    Troops are mustered on the parade ground.

    To muster up courage = to gather your courage together in order to face doing something.

    Don't trouble yourself with the pesky word.
    You won't be understood with your crowd anyway, if you're all accustomed to speaking at the level of 'wat's da...'
    They'll think you're say 'musta'.



    How does one render 'must have' into this dialect?
