Etymology

In standard Japanese, しゃっつら shattsura is used when speaking ill of someone else's face. It was first translated as "your impudent face (used only in contempt or anger)" by James Curtis Hepburn in A Japanese-English and English-Japanese Dictionary (1872), page 456. The term historically derives from しゃつ【奴】 shatsu "(derogatory) guy; him; her" and つら【面】 tsura "face; cheek".
