“If you narc on me, I'll rip your arms off", said Tim to his little brother, as he passed him a cigarette.
Origin of narc
- Short for narcotics agent
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- Short for "narcosis", etymologically related to the first etymology (from "narcotics officer") but instead referring to the medical condition of nitrogen narcosis rather than to narcotics.
- Alternate spelling of nark, influenced by narc (“narcotics officer").
- Abbreviation of "narcotics officer".
