EtymologyEdit

From Parthian [script needed] (nʾz /nāz-/, to take pleasure, delight; exult, triumph). Compare Middle Persian [Manichaean needed] (nʾz /nāz-/, to take pleasure, delight; exult, triumph), Persian ناز(nāz). These are perhaps from Proto-Iranian *nāiz-, from the same Proto-Indo-European source whence Russian не́га (néga), не́жный (néžnyj).

VerbEdit

  1. to pout, to be dainty, to give oneself airs, to stand upon ceremony, to make some difficulty, to be fussy, very particular, disdainful, overnice, to turn up one's nose, to simper, to smirk, to want asking, to hesitate
  2. to play the bully, to set up for a beau, to boast or brag of, to pique or plume oneself
