EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Indo-European *(s)kewd-. Cognate with Sanskrit चोदति (códati, to impel), Old Norse skjóta (to shoot, to shove), English shoot, perhaps Albanian hedh (to throw). Per Derksen, the lengthened root vowel reflects Winter's law. Vasmer additionally includes Latvian kûdinât, kûdît (to urge, to drive), German hutzen (to urge), Sanskrit स्कुन्दते (skúndate, to hurry).
