EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Italian gusto, from Latin gustus (tasting).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

gusto (uncountable)

  1. enthusiasm; enjoyment, vigor
    He sang with more gusto than talent.
    • 17 June 2018, Barney Ronay, The Guardian, Mexico’s Hirving Lozano stuns world champions Germany for brilliant win:
      Germany regeared for the second half: same shape, more control. Mexico had lost some of their vim. And before long the game had turned on its head, with Germany able to keep the ball now, Kroos hitting his range, and Mexico less adept at seizing possession, unable to spring forward with such gusto.
    • 1993, Paul Chadwick, The Dictator’s Dream, Dark Horse Books
      And the sound increases … the power grows … gusto becomes something else: rage.
