Northern English word meaning children. Also used to denote groups of children with the plural 'chiselers'.

Here in Australia kids are sometimes called ankle-biters, and the chiseler term seems to flow in the same vein. ie: children are small and can damage things and cause pain.

The Fall use the word, with a song called 'Chiselers' and in the refrain sung in the background in 'Chilinism'; "Chisler, Chiseler, Chiseler, You're a god damn chiseler".
