English phonetic spelling of Sicilian-American way to say "understand" (in the second person singular). Common in Mob movies. Typically used at the end of the sentence in these movies to verify the listener understands, especially when making threats. Comes from Italian obviously; it's basically capisci or capisce (depending on the context) with the last letter omitted from the pronunciation.
You better make sure your boss is outside the saloon at high noon, capish?

Do you capish the words coming out of my mouth?!

Confirms whether or not the previous question has been understood. Not to be confused with the Italo-American dialect of capisci also known as Capiche. (Kah-Peesh)
You gotta kill 'em to win, capish?
