hairse, hace, hearsh: hoarse.

You are not hoarse in the least.

Your chest sounds fine to me, your lungs are clear, and so is your throat.

You will just have to face facts and admit that you have a great bulky crow’s head in place of your own.

And what comes with that is sounding like the big uproarious crow that you are.

The Scottish Word: hairse with its definition and its meaning illustrated and captioned with the word used in context in the Scots language and in English.
