Definition gyp

Etymology 1

Perhaps from the term gypsy (“Roma”), due to a stereotype of the Roma as swindlers. Compare jew (“defraud”), from Jew, and welsh (“swindle by defaulting on a debt”), from Welsh.

Noun

gyp (plural gyps)

  1. (derogatory, sometimes offensive) A cheat or swindle; a rip-off.
  2. Synonym of gypsy (“contra dance step”)
Verb

gyp (third-person singular simple present gyps, present participle gypping, simple past and past participle gypped)

  1. (derogatory, sometimes offensive) To cheat or swindle someone or something inappropriately.

Etymology 2

Perhaps the same as Etymology 1. An earlier theory derived the term from Ancient Greek γύψ (gúps, “vulture”) (/ɡýps/; compare Greek γύπας (gýpas) /ˈʝi.pas/), "in reference to thievish habits of the servants" (and then derived Etymology 1 thence), but this does not explain the pronunciation.
