That's obviously 'onions', but I sure would like to hear how they pronounced it.
It's interesting how languages change over time. I read somewhere once, that if a person from the present were to go back to the time of Shakespeare, that the English of the day would sound like a foreign language.
I believe it. I once asked a Cockney guy on the street in London for directions, and couldn't understand half of what he said.
