Defining Hock

Normally, I try to avoid being petty. However it's a bit of a shonda when the premiere Yiddish publication in America can't get a Yiddish word correct (even when it is transmogrified into Yeshivish). It reminds me of a friend who once went to the Workman's Circle booksale and all they saw was bad Yiddish Kitsch & religious books. Didan Neztach (our side has one)!

Now, Zalman was kind enough to provide us with Rosten's definition of Hock from the Joy of Yiddish. I will try to weigh in later this week with my definition & its geneaology. In the meanwhile, can someone post the definition from Frumspeak?
