Chiefly in:   worth your wild

Classification: English – final d/t-deletion

Spotted in the wild:

  • The biggest problem with most of these scams is Identity theft. Ill give you all the help you need to make this worth your wild. (link)
  • It will be well worth your wild to get these free credits!!! (link)
  • You are saving the native plants and letting the trees breathe. So it would be worth your wild to volunteer. (link)

Lots of usages of this phrase, I omitted several that seemed possibly to be a play on words (cruise line adverts, etc).

    When she was beginning to speak, my daughter would ask if she could play, go somewhere, etc., “just for a little wild.”
