To all fellow genners,
I wish to appologise for the delay, and extend my thanks to all who
responded to my question regarding Yiddish pronounciation.
With the start of the Intifiada 2, I was called up to army reserve, on an
emergency call up. After that came Sukkot, during which time I was on
vacation. By the time I got back to work I found hundreds of E-mails,
that I've only now managed to get through.
The general consensus is that the pronounciations I had been given by my
wifes uncle are most likely Ukrainian or Galician.
Again, a belated thank you to all who helped.
