A shortened version of the phrase “as per usual” is now used as slang when referring to something that is typical or expected, often in an exaggerated or hyperbolic manner. For example:
Bill: Mike is late, again!
Sara: As per usual.
But instead of saying “as per usual”, the slang version shortens usual to pronounce the first syllable only, which I lazily make an attempt to spell as “ujj”. (IPA /juːʒ/ ―tchrist)
And the question is. . . .
Is there a definitive spelling for the shortened version of “as per usual” — or, more specifically, for the shortened version of usual?
