Can people stop downvoting people that are genuinely just asking questions please? It's not cool and makes me sad whenever I see it. Some people on this site may not be English natives and even if they are, it's not on to mock someone for asking a question, how are people meant to learn otherwise..?
Is there an element of pain to this "rushing"? Just wondering about its relation to German "schinden".
Now this post is old but anyway. If you trust wiktionary, it derives from proto-germanic: "skundijaną" (to accelerate) and is related to German "schänden" and Dutch "schenden" which both mean "to violate", "to defile", "to rape" etc.
I guess it's very likely that schinden has the same root.
Native speaker here: No, there is no pain implied any more than there is in the English "hurry".
Looking at Wiktionary myself, the German "schänden" seems to be derived from the similar word "skandijaną", not from "skundijaną". Swedish does have an equivalent to "schänden" though in the word "skända", which means "defile" or "bring dishonour upon". Just like the English "defile", it can be used both for defiling graves and as a less brazen way of referring to rape.
I don't see why this wouldn't be acceptable. This makes perfect sense to me in English
It is grammatically correct and understandable, but it's not idiomatic English.
I can only think of one instance where "we hurry ourselves home" would be used. In the southern U.S., the reflexive is emphasized in a more or less sarcastic reply to a request viewed as wildly unimportant. "Bless your heart. We'll just hurry our (little) selves back home to get your lunch."
