See also: effin, effin', f'ng, f'n, F-ing

Derivative of the word ‘fucking’, 'effing' means litterally ‘F-ing’. You may see it used on a message board where derogatory words (such as the f-word) are not allowed, to take the place the un-allowed.(Note that on sites such as GameFAQs, this is known as censor bypassing, and you most likely will get modded for it, whether be by a nobleman or some n00b merely&purely because s\he can.) It is, however, its own, unique word, seperate from ‘fucking’ or ‘f'ing’ or ‘F-ing’ in its entireity.

The reason that "I'm late for class"'s definition of this word has received such low ratings is for the fact that s\he acted as a ‘language elitist’ and instantly put the word down, when in actuality s\he did not know the etymological origin of the word and whe\how\under what contexts.. it is generally used.

The edited version of the word "fucking." Spelled this way, it is incorrect. The letter "F" is not to be spelled out. See F'n or F'in for correct spelling.
