- or CHIVEY, a shout, a halloo, or cheer; loud tongued. Probably from CHEVY-CHASE, a boy’s game, in which the word CHEVY is bawled aloud. Dickens uses the word CHIVEY in _Bleak House_ rather freely, but there it is from the other phase of CHEVY-CHASE which follows.
- a knife; also used as a verb, to knife. In all these cases the word is pronounced as though written CHIV or CHIVVY.
