PHIZ. n.s.

PHIZ. n.s.

PHIZ. n.s. [This word is formed by a ridiculous contraction
from physiognomy, and should therefore, if it be written at all,
be written phyz.] The face, in a sense of contempt.
His air was too proud, and his features amiss,
As if being a traitor had alter’d his phiz. Stepney.
