JA’DISH. adj.


JA’DISH. adj. [from jade.]
I. Vitious; bad, as an horse.
That hors’d us on their backs, to show us
A jadish trick at last, and throw us. Hudibras, p. iii.
When once the people get the jadish trick
Of throwing off their king, no ruler’s safe. Southern.
2. Unchaste; incontinent.
‘Tis to no boot to be jealous of a woman; for if the hu-
mour takes her to be jadish, not all the locks and spies in na-
ture can keep her honest. L’Estrange.
