Word of the Week: Chivvy

As in: “If a hawk flies overhead, or a cat is on the prowl in the garden, an ‘alarm call’ is sounded and birds take cover or gang together to chivvy the intruder.”

Lines, D. (2008). The bullies: Understanding bullies and bullying. London: Jessica Kingsley Publishers. Retrieved from


The library’s Credo Reference collection of e-books includes several entries on the word chivvy.
