The article offers poetry criticism of the poem "In Secreit Place This Hyndir Nycht" by Scottish William Dunbar. The author analyzes the use of the word mychane in the line "With moderis mylk yit in your mychane," and suggests that the word is derived from the Gaelic word for abdomen, maothain. Similar Old Irish, Latin, and Scots words are also explored
