Wylin

adjective; sound symbolism
Acting crazy, both in positive and negative connotations.
 
The adjective is an example of sound symbolism, since the original form of the world is “wilding”. The word form “wilding” is another form of conversion, turning the adjective form “wild” into a verb form (which ironically enough, is turned back into an adjective form in this form).
Etymology : similar to etymology for “wild”
