Origin of shout

  • Middle English shoute perhaps from Old Norse skūta a taunt skeud- in Indo-European roots

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From Middle English shouten. Origin Uncertain. Possibly related to Middle English shooten "to shoot (out)" or from or akin to Old Norse skÅ«ta (“to chide, scold"), Old Norse skÅ«ti, skÅ«ta "a taunt". See also the second, rare sense of the verb scout - "to reject with contempt".
