Comment #1: Etymology?
Curtis W Franks (Wed Jun 17 23:03:36 2015)

What is this word's etymology?

Unfortunately, I can't tell you. I was only told a story about some bots
that appeared in IRC one day, that gave the definitions of this word (among
others) whenever someone mentioned them.

I think that it is very useful. In particular, I have seen jicla used for
such a purpose and I hate it.

jicla pe'a = "stirring"? Yeah, I don't think this metaphor is shared by
many other languages, if any.
