Etymology[edit]

From Middle Dutch soge, suege, from Old Dutch *soga, from Proto-Germanic *sugō, from Proto-Indo-European *suh₂kéh₂, from *sū-. Compare Low German Söög, West Frisian sûch, English sow, Swedish sugga, Norwegian sugge. The regular form in Middle Dutch was soge with a back vowel, with fronted suege occurring only in the western dialects. The original form is still found dialectally as zoog.

  1. sow (female pig)
  2. (figuratively) bitch, cow, blatant term of abuse for a 'beastly' human female
