Winker

Automotive Term

A winker is a Japanese term for a turn signal light on a car. This term is primarily used by Honda in much their older english language documentation for their early cars. This would be a mild example of engrish, (since this is a corrupted form of the word blinker).

A horse's blinder; a blinker.
