Word Definition: Hard-by

Not used much in casual Ticket host conversation, but more in promos or live spots between segments. The term is used to describe proximity, it means close to. For example:

Ticket promo guy: "Broadcasting from our new studio, hard-by the AAC..."

In this instance its used to show that the new studios are very close to the AAC, obvious.

But where does the term come from? Who came up with it? Unknown in these offices...

  1. Dictionary says it means near by or close to. Don't know the etymology of the term, but it could have a nautical connection, which would explain why Rhyner embraced it.
