A word English chavs think is their own unique word but it's just another from Scots which has been in regular use in Scotland for hundreds of years. Earliest example from the work of Allan Ramsay, a Scots makar from the 17th century.

Has a variety of meanings including worn-out, unfair, frightened, and more. Of obscure origin. Possibly from old Scottish Gaelic 'sean', meaning old, worn, ancient.
