EtymologyEdit

From Middle English hien, hyen, highen, heiȝen, hiȝen, from Old English hīgian (to hie, hasten, strive), from Proto-West Germanic *hīgōn, from Proto-Germanic *hīgōną (to breathe, snort), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱēygʰ- (swift, fierce, violent).

Cognate with Dutch hijgen (to pant), German heichen (to choke, gasp for breath), Danish hige (to aspire, long), Latin cieō (set in motion, invoke, provoke), Ancient Greek κινέω (kinéō, move, set in motion).

PronunciationEdit

VerbEdit

hie (third-person singular simple present hies, present participle hying or hieing, simple past and past participle hied)

  1. (intransitive, poetic) To hasten; to go quickly, to hurry.
  2. (reflexive, poetic) To hurry (oneself).

Usage notesEdit

Unlike most reflexive verbs, “hie” generally takes the simple object pronouns rather than the reflexive pronouns. Thus “we hied us” and “hie you,” rather than “we hied ourselves” and “hie yourself.” This peculiarity most likely arises from a sense that the poetic connotations of “hie” accord well with the archaic practice of using object pronouns with reflexive verbs.
