English term or phrase: Poperin
Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' 2.1.40
Eiginta
translation:see explanation
Explanation:
My version of Romeo and Juliet says:

"Poperin: a variety of pear named after the town of Poperinghe in Belgium"

However, you know, there are strong discussions around the topic. Some critics say that this phrase has a sexual connotation, and has to do with something involving the tongue.(you can check it through a lot of Internet sites! It seems that the Bard was a sex expert)

You choose!

Hope it helps!
