pie2 (c.1170)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 8,420b pica; Gdf: 6,44c pie2; GdfC: 10,334b pie; TL: 7,877 pie; DEAF:  pie 1; DMF:  pie 1; TLF:  pie 1; OED:  pie n.1; MED:  pi(e n.1; DMLBS: 2273a pica 1 ]
piet,  pye; 
pl. pyez  

For pie2 used to reinforce a negation, see Möhren, Le renforcement affectif de la negation, p. 188. As the expression used in Horn 2764 is also found in Continental French, it seems less plausible to interpret it as an instance of pie1.
