a printed punctuation mark (‽), available only in some typefaces, designed to combine the question mark (?) and the exclamation point (!), indicating a mixture of query and interjection, as after a rhetorical question.
O.E. scrybb "brushwood, shrubbery," a rare and late word, possibly from a Scand. source (cf. dial. Dan. skrub "brushwood," Norw. skrubba "dwarf tree"). Presumably related to N.Fris. skrobb "broom plant, brushwood;" W.Flem. schrobbe "climbing wild pea." Shrubbery first attested 1748.
