dále shine
 v. phr.— «“I’ve heard it used in Ohio. I think it means ‘to approve of something.’” According to Joe Lopez, Chicano artist and owner of Gallista Gallery, “You can’t really describe dále shine directly, you can only describe around it. We used to say ‘dále shine’ if we were about to get into a fight or to get up the courage to ask a girl to dance at places like Arthur Murray’s downtown. Even our mothers and grandmothers have used it.”» —“That little something extra” by Santiago Garcia San Antonion Current (Texas) mar. 31, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
