Publisher Comments:

This fascinating, useful, and funny collection of proverbs, curses, maxims, and ribald expressions will teach readers all they ever wanted to know about this remarkable language.

Synopsis:

Wish you could say classic Yiddish proverbs, such as A falsheh matba'ieh farliert men nit: A bad penny always turns up; Nit kain entfer iz oich an entfler: No answer is also an answer; Az se brent, iz a fei'er: Where there's smoke, there's fire. Ever wonder what people mean when the say k'vetsch, meshugeh, nebbish, and shnook? This fascinating, useful, sometimes riotously funny collection of colloquialisms, proverbs, curses, maxims, and ribald expressions will provide you access to the riches of one of the world's most remarkable languages and a means to enjoy it and apply it in everyday life.
