Wort, cabbage

Merry Wives of Windsor, [1.1.111-116]. Shallow. “The council shall know this.” Falstaff. “‘Twere better for you if it were known in counsel. You’ll be laugh’d at.” Evans. “Pauca verba, Sir John; goot worts.” Falstaff. “Good worts! Good cabbage. Slender, I broke your head. What matter have you against me?”

Evans is mispronouncing ‘words.’
