ぞなもし : zonamoshi | define meaning
- (Rare) An ending used to add emphasis to a phrase or sentence.
Seemingly derived by compounding the emphatic particles ぞ zo and な na, along with either the humble verb form もうし【申し】 moushi "to be called" or, less likely, the conjectural adverb もし【若し】 moshi "if, supposing".
The ending has mostly fallen out of use nowadays and may in fact be pejorative. See also なもし namoshi.
