Maybe kahvi's version of "ape" is actually a word passed down from the High Ones to describe the ground digging creatures that the Trolls descended from? Maybe she is using the term as a slur without really knowing what it means... Or, actually... didn't she call Picknose an 'ape' right after she heard Timmain's story in the Scroll of Colors? In that story, narrated by Suntop, Timmain describes the trolls as descendants of ground digging apes (like Potoo explains)- and I think that might be where Kahvi got the word- in which case, she is fully aware of what it means and is using it somewhat accurately.
