To me 'to chew the fat' means 'to gossip, to talk' rather than 'to argue'.
Kescôwsel is unattested. The attested word is
kestalkya, which is attested once:
me redeth omma defry drefen agen bos vnwoys ze kestalkye
'I have come here indeed because we are closely related to converse' BM 234-36.
The simplex talkya is attested as early as OM:
Eua prag na thuete nes rag cous orthyf ha talkye
'Eve, why don't you come near to speak to me and to talk?' OM 149-50.
