Pronunciation: The `scroo’ is pronounced like the word `screw’, and the final `ge’ sounds like the `j’ in `jam’, `jump’, and Job.
A scrooge must be someone who hates spending money. He must be a miser. Scrooge is actually a character in Charles Dickens’s `A Christmas Carol’.
Example: When I was growing up, I thought my uncle was a bit of a Scrooge. But he was very generous compared to my boss.
