A question with a difference, perhaps?! For some English speakers in my country, South Africa, the word "jazz" as a slang word for toilet/W.C./bathroom/loo is quite common. I thought I would find an explanation of the origin of this slang word in various very reputable English dictionaries, but no luck! Is anyone participating in this forum familiar with this word in this meaning and/or know where (i.e. in which country or sociolect perhaps) it originated?
I had never heard this (Briitish English speaker) and I looked it up in a couple of slang dictionaries and they didn't give it either. In the UrbanDictionary.com, they do give that meaning, but it comes from a compatriot of yours, so I think it probably originated there: http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...rm=jazz&page=4
