The word Guz (also spelled as Guzz, at the time) entered the Oxford English Dictionary in the later part of the 19th century, having been originally submitted by the noted lexicographer William Chester Minor. It was originally equal to 28 and 4/5 inches in India (so that "5 Guzz = 4 yards"). The word has supposedly given the Royal Navy base at HMNB Devonport, in Plymouth, the affectionate nickname of "Guzz", which sailors used to refer to the Dockyard, used to regularly abbreviate the word to simply "The Yard", resulting in the slang use of the Hindi word for the unit of measurement of the same name.
