thus and so(redirected from thus-and-so)
thus and so
1. adjective Of or relating to a particular way, manner, or arrangement. In practical terms, it may be taken for granted that the world is thus and so, but for the sake of philosophical argument, we should not and cannot assume any such thing. I'm less interested with the thus-and-so prescriptions of religious doctrines, and more concerned with the general message of Christianity as a whole.
2. adverb phrase In such a particular way or manner; as directed or instructed. The boss is so specific about the way a report is laid out. If you don't write it thus and so each and every time, you'll be sure to hear about it from him later.
