Transcript.

Today's word is shill, spelled S-H-I-L-L.

Shill is a verb that means to act as a decoy as for a pitchman or gambler. It can also mean, more broadly, to act as a spokesperson or promoter. Here is the word used in a sentence from the Los Angeles Times by Emily Alpert Reyes.

"In recent years, people who hawked ice cream or hot dogs, taught yoga or shilled other goods and services in Los Angeles parks were legally in the clear."

Although some who shill are legitimately employed to extol the wonders of legitimate products, this was not always the case. In the first documented uses of the word shill, in the early 1900s, it was more likely that anyone hired to shill was trying to con you into parting with some cash. Practitioners were called shills, that noun also dates from the early 1900s, and they did everything from faking big wins at casinos to promote gambling to pretending to buy tickets to encourage people to see certain shows. Shill is thought to be a shortened form of shillaber, an obscure noun synonymous with shill, but etymologists have found no definitive evidence of where that longer term originated.
