RECK, v.i. [L. rego. See Rack and Reckon.]To care; to mind; to rate at much; as we say, to reckon much of; followed by of. Obs.Thou's but a lazy loorde, and recks much of thy swinke. I reck as little what betideth me, as much I wish all good befortune you.Of night or loneliness it recks me not.
RECK, v.t. To heed; to regard; to care for.This son of mine not recking danger.[This verb is obsolete unless in poetry. We observe the primary sense and application in the phrase, "it recks me not," that is, it does not strain or distress me; it does not rack my mind. To reck danger is a derivative form of expression, and a deviation from the proper sense of the verb.]
