What is the meaning of “I dove my hat”?
or fill in the name and email fields below:
Are you sure it's dove, not doffed. To doff your hat is when (usually) a man takes off his hat briefly as a sign of respect, for example to a woman. It's still done a lot here in Poland, where some men also doff their hats when they pass a church. According to my dictionary, the past is doffed, but maybe this is a regional variant.
or maybe it's a typo, and the expression is "I love you hat"
Like Sue says, it's "I doff my hat" or a more common variant "I tip my hat" It means to give your respect or admiration. For example, I tip/doff my hat to those who donate to charity.
I DOVE MY HAIR BACK AND FORTH
'swaindom is all about bootlicking, kneebending and doffenness to the big man'
I would assume that "dove" is past-tense for "doff". "Yesterday, I dove my hat to a sweet old lady".
Pronounced with a long "o", not like the bird.
Tom in TX
I hang-glid off the mountain, dove into the lake, and dove my hat to the sweet old lady.
"I dove my hat" is not English. It's 'doffed'.
I believe that 'don' is a contraction of 'do on' and 'doff' is a contraction of 'do off'.
