Top definition
adj. Somewhat dun or dusky.

v.t. 1. To consume completely. 2. To have sexual congress with. 3. To achieve victory and dominance, esp. through violence or in combat; to destroy or to disfigure.

Inflected forms: dunnished, dunnishing, dunnishes
Other forms: dunnishment (n.)

Notes on usage and etymology. As a verb, the term is comparable to the verb "to pound." It is also somewhat similar in its connotations to the phrase "to do the job (on)," as used in Mario Puzo's novel "The Godfather" (1969), where it is used both as a sexual euphemism and as a phrase denoting a "hit." One theory traces the word "dunnish" from the German "Donnerschmied," meaning "thundersmith"; presumably, this was converted into English as "dunnishment," and the verb "to dunnish" was the result of a back-formation. More likely, however, "dunnish" is a portmanteau word, combining the words "done" and "punish," or possibly "done" and "finish."
