Wink And Nod Agreement

I suspected that “a nod and a wink” might be a British usage, and “a wink and a nod” american. Pretty sure, if I checked with Google`s ngram Viewer, “a nod and a wink” is more common in English; American English is the opposite. I was surprised to read the previous comments to see “a nod and a wink,” and I had never heard of a nod being as good as a wink,” but the phrase “a wink and a nod” was very familiar to me. If someone does something “under the table” – like bribes — with the other participant`s understanding, they could do it “with a wink and a nod,” which means everyone understands without saying. This chapter examines the practice and implications of race-neutral campaign strategies in America. Specifically, the origins of neutral racist campaign strategies among black politicians are examined in the early 1980s and how race-neutral black candidates, particularly Barack Obama, acted against racism or racial inequality during their election campaigns.

Lumpkin, 798 F.2d 1297, 1302 (9 cir. 1986)); People v. Coyer, 142 Cal. App.3d 839, 843 (1983) (“It is the subjective expectations of the witness” that are decisive for impeachment proceedings, not the actual benefit that is granted); people v. Phillips, 41 Cal.3d 29, 47-48 (1985) (not to indicate the benefits given prior to testimony, not only deprives jurors of information that allows them to be credible, but encourages witnesses to lie; Witnesses “may be influenced by his hopes and fears, that he promises to testify whatever the prosecutor wants” to get what he wants later).
