Danish[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Old Danish keed, possibly from Proto-Germanic *kaibaz (crooked), cf. Norwegian Nynorsk keiv (wry, wrong, left), keive (left hand), German Low German keef (tired). The adjective has forms with -w in Danish dialects of Jutland and Bornholm. Possibly the standard form kēð arose in the syntagm led og ked.

The adjective is derived from the verb *kībaną (to quarrel), cf. Danish kives, German keifen, and Dutch kijven.
