The Scottish Word:

Shaw

“Ony mair lip oot o you an it’s yir heid I’ll be shawin, no the neeps.”

Translated:

shaws: the stalks and leaves of potatoes or turnips; shaw: to cut off the shaws of turnips.

“Any more cheeky words from you and it is your head I will be removing, rather than the stalks off the turnips.”

[shaw spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]
