gaseous clay - A certain Middle Eastern story has us being made "from the clay of the earth." More precisely we are composed of matter, various elements, and compounds and minerals: I'm a material guy. But largely we are gas!

gashean - A Cumbrian (Beatrix Potter, Lake District) dialect word for an overbearing or nasty woman. A harridan. The word arrived in the county in 1828 with the first Irish Navvies that built the railways that criss-cross the county. The navvies were housed in vast camps out in the wilds, but at payday they would descend into the nearest town for some easy living. Due to the ensuing brawls that often broke out, many pub landladies would put a sign outside their pub saying "No Navvies." The navvies would refer to the landlady as being a gasheen but over time this became more anglicised and softened to gashean meaning over-bearing woman.

e.g., James and Katy lost their ball over the fence into Mrs Walker's garden. However, they didn't dare ask for it back as she was an old gashean. | The ward sister said to the young nurse, "You don't want to get on the wrong side of matron as she can be a gashean when angry."
