A horrid word that is to me, as nails on the black-board.
It is a mixture of the words spare and change,
pronounced something like Spaay-nge.
If you have not guessed, this is basically the 1984-esqe, one word slang mesh of the aforementioned words. Used by Portland street urchins, it means to "panhandle" or beg for spare change.
