(verb, transitive) to move something slightly. From the Japanese adjective sukoshi = a small amount, a bit, slightly.
(I first heard it used as a verb in 2000 by an American native-English speaker who hadn't studied Japanese, but had just hung around with Japanese exchange students in the US.)

A versatile word that is useful in any situation, regardless of context.

Can be used in its formal tense as "a little bit of something" or as a healthy replacement for any obscene expletive contrived by the human race.
"Son of a skosh! I just tripped over that large rock and really skoshed myself up! Ah well, I'll feel a skosh better in the skoshin morning after a couple skoshes of tequila. Then, I'll really feel skoshtastic. Skosh."
