Chevy ( (CHEV-ee) ) verbshow definition
Verb tr.: To chase or annoy.
Noun: A chase, hunt, or a hunting cry.
Etymology: After Cheviot Hills bordering England and Scotland. A battle between English and Scottish forces over a hunting expedition is described in a 15th-century ballad (The Ballad of Chevy Chase). A chase is a tract of land reserved for hunting. The name of the city Chevy Chase in Maryland has the same origin. Earliest documented use: before 1825.
Usage: “[Boys] chevied the younger boys to greater speed as they stumbled down the stairs.” Clinton W. Trowbridge; All Tied Up; The Christian Science Monitor (Boston, Massachusetts); Jan 22, 1999.
