Offensive slang used as a disparaging term for a person from east-central Europe, especially a laborer.

Dialectical variations include: hunky, c.1896 and honky, c.1946.

Variation in spelling includes: hunyak. Probably a compound of Hungarian + Polack.

All these terms are used contemptuously.
When my grandfather immigrated to America, it was hard for him to get respect at work, because everyone thought he was just a honyock.
