minx (mingks) noun
A pert or flirtatious young woman.
[Of unknown origin, perhaps from Middle Dutch or Low German.]
"This innocent-looking minx had her face right up against the terrible rictal grin of Cape Town's adopted son, Marthinus van Skulkwyk." Ben Trovato; On the Run; Cape Times (Cape Town, South Africa); Feb 24, 2004.
"Politics, love, and God -- it's all in there in the raps of Shawn Butler, who keeps his rhymes on the positive tip whether singing about a minx who's caught his eye or the struggles he faced while growing up in Chicago's Chatham neighborhood." Matt McGuire; Rock the Vote!; Chicago Tribune; Feb 25, 2004.
