Is this a real word? If not what other word could I use in place of it?

Asked by tooooookl (29points) May 16th, 2010

I’m sure I’ve heard people say “Give it a bit of funaze.” or funase, not too sure how it’s spelt if it’s spelt like any of them two.

It just means to give it a bit extra. If not what other world could I use in replacement of it in this sentence?

It sure reminds me of ‘pizzazz’

No, that is not a real word. Alternatives may be “fizz”, or “pizzazz”.

Oh yeah now you say it that is right.

Variation on “finesse”?

I thought of “finesse,” too.

I thought it was fitness. ;-)

A little extra can be described by “lagniappe.”

“Finesse” means intricate and refined delicacy.

“Pizzazz” is the best, implying creativity and energy.

I thought fun-ass. “No thank you, no caviar for me. I prefer fun-ass foods like pizza.”
