PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ˈɡiːʁən/, [ˈɡiːʁən], [ˈɡiː.ɐn]

Etymology 1Edit

From Middle Low German gīren (to open one’s jaws, gape, scream). Cognate with Dutch gieren (to scream). Related also with German Geier (vulture) and gähnen, English yawn. In standard German, the word has always been associated with unrelated Gier (greed, lust) and is typically regarded a derivative thereof.

VerbEdit

gieren (third-person singular simple present giert, past tense gierte, past participle gegiert, auxiliary haben)

  1. (with nach) to desire greedily, to lust for
  2. (possibly dated) to open one’s jaws so as to snap

Etymology 2Edit

From Dutch gieren, which is possibly the same word as that mentioned under etymology 1, with a semantic development “to scream, squeak” → “to make a repeated squeaking movement”. Alternatively from Dutch geren, also gieren (to be askew), from geer (asymmetric piece of land).

VerbEdit

gieren (third-person singular simple present giert, past tense gierte, past participle gegiert, auxiliary haben)

  1. (nautical, aviation) to yaw
