    dish out some cash

    Dear Friends,

    I'm trying to figure out the meaning of 'dish out some cash' from different dictionaries but I am puzzled now. Is it only a synonym for 'give'? Does it mean that you give only a little amout of money? Is it a slang?

    Thank you very much.

    Yes it is slang, it means to give or spend any amount of money, big or small.

    Re: dish out some cash

    Also, the slang to "dish out" is often used with other distributed things....

    To dish out punishment.
    To dish out reward.
    To dish out food.
    ... and so forth.

    It is less likely used with the word money, rather other words meaning money.

    To dish out the meager pay.
    To dish out the offerings.
    To dish out the small change.
