Bump  

White bumps into the Black stone. A natural local response is usually to stretch to a or b. A common term for this move is butting play.

The Japanese term is tsukiatari.

The bump is not a very usual move, but it has its uses.


Example 1: Kitani joseki

There is an interesting branch of 3-4 point joseki (invented by Kitani Minoru) starting with a bump:

The bump is occasionally used as a situational move? for preventing White from connecting underneath at a.

(unkx80: A better example is requested.)

Also, the first round of Go Seigen vs Miyamoto Naoki 9x9 match started with a bump:
