A word commonly known in the food service industry by servers who frequently enter and exit the kitchen with their hands full. Servers call out "Corner" as they approach the entryway to and from the kitchen when they have trays, glassware and/or plates in their hands. The purpose of this is to warn anyone who may be approaching from the other direction, unseen by the person calling out "Corner" and thus avoiding a collision and the subsequential spill of aforementioned plates/glassware. Servers new to the industry usually find themselves saying "Corner" out of work when they approach a corner, and it is cause for much laughter and embarrassment.
Thanks for not calling corner, now I have to remake all of these drinks, you asswipe!

(FINANCE) Used either as a noun: a situation in which a trader controls the supply of a traded item, such as shares of stock, supplies of a commodity, etc.

Or else, used as a verb: to obtain control over the supply of a thing, so that one can drive the price up to extremely high levels.

Cornering the market for anything (or getting a corner) is extremely difficult and requires not only immense amounts of money (usually borrowed for the purpose), but also timing and the ability to bluff opponents.

A corner is ultimately a long position in the sense that it is a direct attack on investors taking a short position.
The corner must be timed very precisely, because it cannot last for more than a very short time. Even when the the price of the thing (like, say, silver) goes up to very, very high levels, more supplies cannot come onto the market or the corner will be lost.

At the same time, there has to be a target of the corner--some group of people who have to buy the cornered item no matter how high the price goes (otherwise, the quantity demanded will just go to zero). For this reason, corners are nearly always part of an attempt to squeeze the shorts.
