German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Unsettled. Reliable German etymologists trace it back to English pace, but this association may be secondary. A relation with Dutch pezen (to work hard; to run quickly) is probable. This Dutch verb was attested as early as 1632 and is related to pees (sinew).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈpeːzən/, /ˈpeːsən/

Verb[edit]

pesen (third-person singular simple present pest, past tense peste, past participle gepest, auxiliary sein)

  1. (chiefly colloquial) to run quickly, usually implying haste or confusion
    Als er gemerkt hat, dass er sein Portmonee vergessen hatte, ist er wie ein Verrückter zurück zum Laden gepest.
