ᴺS. [G.] hest n. “sibling” (Category: Sibling)
A word appearing as G. hest in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s for “brother or sister” [sibling], but “properly consanguinity, the relationship of brother and sister, or brother and brother, etc.” (GL/48); this original meaning seems to be archaic, transferred to G. hestri or G. gochestri. This word is derived from the early root ᴱ√heth¹ (GL/48).
