Very large or very much; humongous, important: She had a lot of things on her desk top, including a mondo-size slo-mo printer/ I've got a mongo bruise on my leg from field hockey/ You'd think it took some kind of miracle, or some mondo engineering breakthrough
[1979+; fr Italian mondo, ''world''; the mongo variant is probably just imitative]
Something valuable found in an abandoned building, a trash bin, etc
[1979+; origin unknown]
