EtymologyEdit

19th c., denominal from Schubs, Schupps (push), from Schupp (push) +‎ -s (intensive nominal ending). Schupp (15th c.), in turn, is deverbal from northern Middle High German and Middle Low German schuppen, from Proto-Germanic *skuppōną, intensive form of *skeubaną, whence German schieben and English shove. Doublet of now colloquial German schuppen. Also cognate with Middle High German schupfen, Dutch schoppen. The spelling with -b- by association with related Schub, which has a long vowel, however.
