Now my little flower there is no need to screech on so.
Here is a lollypop for you and I will give you another when we are home.

The Scottish Word: skraich with its definition and its meaning illustrated and captioned with the word used in context in the Scots language and in English.
The Predator Stun.
I am not a fan of little girls who piercingly screech in delight or distress at every little thing that excites them.
Or use it to cow their parents.
Isn’t it a noise that should be reserved to stun dangerous predators?
Rather than squandered in idle excitement?
