half-pat
 adj.— «When described as a diasporic writer, Shamsie had something interesting to say. She coined her own phrase to describe where she writes from—“half-pat.” Not ex-pat or nomad, but just somebody who has been exposed to different spaces and is able to access both (or however many) to be able to create something.» —“Loving the word” by Mina Malik-Hussain Daily Times (Lahore, Pakistan) Feb. 19, 2008.
