Tush. interj. [Of this word I can find no credible etymology.] An expression of contempt.
Tush, say they, how should God perceive it: is there knowledge in the most high? Psalm lxxiii.
Sir Thomas Moor found fault with his lady's continual chiding, saying; the consideration of the time, for it was sent, should restrain her. Tush, tush, my lord, said she, look, here is one step to heaven-ward, shewing him a friar's girdle. I fear me, quoth Sir Thomas, this one step will not bring you up a step higher. Camden's Remains.
Tush never tell me, I take it much unkindly
That thou, Iago, who hast had my purse,
As if the strings were thine, should know of this. Shak.
