I've just read something saying
Over $10,000 needed
to make our cowdfunding target
Initially I read that long word as "cowdunging", but I now think it must
be something to do with orking.
Crowdfunding. Whatever is "orking"?
In one sense it is the result of verbing the noun "ork" as defined
Etymology: Shortened < orchestra n.
slang (originally and chiefly U.S.).
An orchestra; spec. a jazz or dance band.
1933 Brevities (N.Y.) 24 Apr. 5/1 Joe Haymes' Nut Club ork..has
been compelled to take on a few Noo Yawk musicians.
1988 Wire Mag. Apr. 66/1 His strained tenor..is not an appealing
sound despite the high quality of the orks..which back him.
