Ois forOff

Something is off if it is not powered up and available to be used. The computer in the picture is switched off. Off also can be used to indicate something no longer attached to something else: "the branch broke off the tree", or for reducing something: "take ten percent off the price". The opposite of off is on.

Off rhymes with ...

Cough, Waft, Scoff, Trough, Waffle ... see all
