What one word would fill in the blank? "The word "____" is a frequent synonym for "yes", particularly in Scotland, Ireland and northern England, although not always officially acknowledged as such. In December 1993, a witness in a Scottish court who had answered "____" to confirm he was the person summoned was told by the Sheriff that he must answer either "yes" or "no". When his name was read again and he was asked to confirm it, he answered "____" again, and was imprisoned for 90 minutes for contempt of court. On his release he said "I genuinely thought I was answering him.""
