Re: Yiddish words #general


MBernet@...
 

In a message warshall@... seeks translations
for various Yiddish terms in a Memorial book.

I'll try a few:

1. a broken-down wagon is described as "tsushedikt"
==parallel with German verscha"digt = demaged, >from Schade, damage.
Alternative yiddish forms include Oysvershedik, perhaps a more emphatic word.

2. a collapsed horse is described as "gepeygert"
==dead. >from Hebrew "Peger" a body/corpse not killed by ritual slaughter.

Some of the other words are probably of local Slavic provenance, or may be
regional words.
