  • Isn't "gor" also a word that belongs from Kurdo, that means "according to"?

  • In US/UK English "Kurdo" is usually rendered as Kurdish.

    For what it's worth, in about 5 minutes of Google Books/News searches and I can't find any examples of this usage of "gor." The only non-typo results in English in recent years are mostly references to Kenyan football club Gor Mahia.

    I'd guess that it's an extremely relaxed pronunciation of "according", spelled phonetically to capture the pronunciation. Assuming you saw this in print somewhere.
