Origen

mid 19th century: from Romany nāk 'nose'.

More
  • The original meaning of nark was ‘an annoying or troublesome person’, a sense which survives in Australia and New Zealand, and in the verb nark, ‘to annoy’. The word is from Romany nok or nak, ‘nose’. Snout and snitch (L17th, of unknown origin) are other words that mean both ‘nose’ and ‘informer’, and the word nosy itself implies an inappropriate interest in other people's business.
