kid


kid
kid
in its informal meaning ‘child’ (He's only a kid / He came with his wife and kids), has a long history, being first recorded in the 17c, but is still only suitable for more informal use. The verb to kid, meaning ‘to trick or tease’, is early 19c and possibly derived from this noun; it has the same level of informality.
