Re: Riddle for LPMan

I am glad you got it. I don't think LP has yet realized that "Gotcha" means two things - "I get it " -AKA, I understand - and "I have bested you" - gotcha. That's OK. The really funny part is that the answer "Gotcha" means "I got you" while still addressing the other meaning. It went over his head.

Word or not a word...

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/gotcha

 

It is an alteration of got you. It is a word. I do not consider it proper speech, but many words are not proper speech. It is certainly widely known. For instance, you might hear "gotcha" in a movie during dialogue or you might read it in a book the same way. If it is not a word, then what is it? A sound?
