    Re: dandy-master

    Hello Lukre,

    A "dandy" is a male who pays a great deal of attention to his clothes, and makes sure that he always looks smart and fashionable.

    A "master" might be a schoolteacher, or, from the perspective of a servant or slave, the person that one serves.

    Thus a "dandy master" might be e.g. a very smartly dressed schoolteacher.

    On the other hand, "dandy-master" might also be a slang term in an activity with which I'm not familiar.

    What context did you find it in?

    MrP

    Not a professional ESL teacher.

    Re: dandy-master

    I don't have much context -a man said to a child -you cursed little dandy-master, but since the child belongs to upper-class I'll go with meaning #1 then.

    Thanks for your help!
