Dan. swarn adj. “perverse, obstinate, hard to deal with”
An adjective glossed “perverse, obstinate, hard to deal with” developed from the root ᴹ√SKWAR (Ety/SKWAR), perhaps from a primitive form *✶skwarnā as suggested by Helge Fauskanger (AL-Nandorin/swarn). Here the initial [skw] became [sw], consistent with the changes described in the Comparative Tables (PE19/20).
