A made up word. Part of the word "Uncouth" meaning rude, but by itself meaningless. It falls into the category of words that need prefixes in order to exist. (unkempt, disgruntled, overwhelmed, etc.)

Archaically used to mean "familiar, " "known" opposite to "uncouth" meaning "unfamiliar" and "unknown"
*bumps into someone* --"wow, that's really uncouth"
"So if I apologize does that mean I have couth?"
"No, that means you have manners. Couth isn't a word by itself."

"Couth, couth"

couth is what the uncouth certainly dont have. couth saves you from ugly table manners, being filthy, and crude language (usually "potty talk").

A. To have or to possess a degree of couth.

B. A Paladin playing World of Warcraft who never listens to his group members because he feels above them skill and experience wise. He often queues for random dungeons with a tank and said tank leaves group upon joining. Ironically Couthful is usually the best player in the group by far, able to lead and outdamage everyone, however his name seems like antonym for himself.
A. That was couthful of that dude to hold the door open for his girlfriend.

B. "Oh crap!" he yelled, "Couthful is in our group, he is going to quadruple the damage I do then sarcastically belittle me with backhanded compliments! :("
