Akimbo

October 5, 2008

AKIMBO – adv. with hands on the hips and elbows turned outwards.

So this one is pretty straight forward, I just thought it was interesting that there is a word for this.  I’ve only ever come across it a handful of times in conversation and literature, so if you think you can do it, this one would probably be a good one to make you sound smart.

eg. Peter Pan is well known for posing with his arms akimbo.
