In Scots, a word meaning "Be quiet" is usually spelled as wheest or whist. It is a favoured word of bad-tempered school teachers in particular...
sionnach commented on the word uisht
I think in Ireland, we spell this "Wisht!" (whist being a card game).
There is also a similar word "Wisha", or "Whisha", which I associate with a kind of melancholy longing that the world were other than it is.
