Lagniappe
(lan'-yap).

"A Little Something Extra"

Lagniappe derives from New World Spanish la ├▒apa, "the gift," and ultimately from Quechua yapay, "to give more." The word came into the rich Creole dialect mixture of New Orleans and there acquired a French spelling. It is still used in the Gulf states, especially southern Louisiana. By extension, it may mean "an extra or unexpected gift or benefit."
