It's ABC WEDNESDAY! and I didn't even have to go to my dictionary to find a word.
Yiddish- it's a mutt of a language, based on german, hebrew, and slavic languages. It's called a fusion language- but I like the word mutt- because that's what I am as well.
I've always loved Yiddish phrases. You know 'em- you just might not realize that they are yiddish! Words like bubbala, blintz, chutzpa, gelt, glitch, kvetch, klutz, nosh, plotz, oy vey (I actually use that without knowing where it came from), shmuck, schlep, shmooze, schlub, tushy, and spiel. I'd love to emmerse myself in yiddish just so I can learn to speak it mixed with English- yenglish? Engiddish?
If you are bored- Google Yiddish Phrases, you know you'll love them.
