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

Hivna.

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

Translated:

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.”
