Word of the Day Dash: Sending More Than a Smidgen of Regards

Israelis use this acronym to tell someone they said hi - and sometimes spice it up with some heat.

If you run into someone whose family you know or with whom you share a mutual acquaintance, you might well end your encounter by sending along some dash. Or rather dash, pronounced with the short “o” of “pot” rather than the appley “a” of an elongated hyphen.
