Thingamajig

DEFINITION

Reference to an unknown item. The item may be known by someone, but the reference is something unknown to the speaker. The word, thingamajig, itself is manufactured as if a question by it’s very name.  Precisely it reads as ‘thing’ of a jig’, ‘jig’ referring to some unknown thingy. (Compare to Doohickey)

  “I worked on my auto engine and came across a thingmajig that I can’t fix.”
