From Middle English manken, from Old English mancian, bemancian (“to maim, mutilate”), of obscure origin. Cognate with Dutch and Middle Low German mank (“lame, defective”), Middle High German manc (“lack, defect”). Perhaps from Latin mancus (“maimed, crippled, frail, incomplete”), from Proto-Indo-European *mank-, *menk- (“maimed, mutilation, torment”).
mank (third-person singular simple present manks, present participle manking, simple past and past participle manked)
mank (not comparable)
- (US, slang) man milk, literally milk lactated from a male's nipple as opposed to a female's. Different meaning than the slang man milk, this is not semen.
- Baby Mank is a muscle baby raised on man milk, commonly known as mank.
