Welcome to day three of Things in Scots!—a fun collaboration with my husband, Jez.
Today’s word is another of my favorites: Wheesht.
Wheesht means shhh, be quiet, shut up. It’s also used to quieten/silence groups of people—normally weans (kids).
The reason it’s one of my favorites is how it’s normally used in a sentence:
Haud yer wheesht!(In Inglis) Shut up!/Hold your tongue!
Thenks fur stoapin by, and hae a wunnerfu day. (Mind an gie Jez’s post a keek.)
Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day. (Remember to check out Jez’s post.)
