Faroese[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The verb is first mentioned in Svabo's Dictionarium Færoense from about 1773. There, he describes it neutral as ‘to lie with a woman’ (Danish: bivaane et Fruetimmer, Latin: foeminam inire, coitum cum sexu femineo exercere). The second meaning is ‘to cut with a dull knife’ (Danish: skære med sløv Kniv, Latin: hebeti cultro secare). Hammershaimb/Jakobsen 1891 don't mention it, and Chr. Matras 1961 describes the first meaning as vulgar, and the second as archaic. This is also true for the Føroysk orðabók 1998.
