Top Definition
An extremely British way of saying "basically", "in a sense", "in a way", "in a manner of speaking", or "idiomatically", almost always used at the end of a sentence. It's often stuffed into a conversation when the speaker is having a difficult time expressing what they really mean in precise language, and it can take the place of "um" when used habitually to keep words flowing in the absence of thought.
He's a bit shy. He doesn't want to upset the apple cart, as it were.
