scoot (v.)1758, “run, fly, make off, move suddenly or swiftly,” perhaps originally nautical slang, of uncertain origin, possibly from a Scandinavian source such as Old Norse skjota “to shoot,” and thus related to shoot (v.). There are similar words in dialect and jargon, but the connection is unclear. OED suspects the word became obsolete in British English early 19c. and was re-introduced from America. From 1805 as “flow or gush out with force” (Scottish). Related: Scooted; scooting. As a noun from 1864, “act or action of scooting.”Related entries & more
scoot (v.)1758，“跑、飞、起飞、突然或迅速移动”，可能最初是航海俚语，来源不确定，可能来自斯堪的纳维亚语来源，例如古挪威语 skjota“射击”，因此与射击有关（v.）。方言、行话中也有类似的词语，但联系不清。 OED 怀疑这个词在 19 世纪初的英式英语中就已经过时了。并从美国重新引入。从 1805 年起为“用力流动或喷出”（苏格兰语）。相关： 速行；滑板车。作为 1864 年的名词，“滑行的行为或动作”。相关条目及更多
