Monks at breakfast with their pet dragon using its breath to try and make toast.
The Scottish Word:


“Yiv gi’in him oer much coal hivni ye! Ye ken it scowders the toast an cracks the flair.”


hivna, havna, haivena: have not.

“You have given him too much coal have you not! You know it results in the toast getting scorched and cracks in the floor.”

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