jargon Something (not a person) that loses; a situation in
which something is losing. Emphatic forms include "moby
loss", and "total loss", "complete loss". Common
interjections are "What a loss!" and "What a moby loss!"
Note that "moby loss" is OK even though **"moby loser" is not
used; applied to an abstract noun, moby is simply a magnifier,
whereas when applied to a person it implies substance and has
positive connotations.
