Codswallop

My word of the day is codswallop. It is a word meaning nonsense and probably most often used by English speakers from Great Britain and Ireland.

Synonyms of the word codswallop include: balderdash, baloney, hogwash, humbug, poppycock and rubbish.

Here’s an example of the word codswallop being used in a sentence:

Speaker A: Gorzów is probably the most cosmopolitan city in Europe.

Speaker B: “What a load of codswallop!”

Listen to it being spoken by a native speaker from England here.
