A practical guide to using Yiddish words and expressions in day-to-day situations, along with enough grammar to enable readers to put together a comprehensible sentence and avoid embarrassing mistakes. Wex also explains the five most useful Yiddish words--shoyn, nu, epes, takeh, and nebakh--what they mean, how and when to use them, and how they can be used to conduct an entire conversation without anybody ever suspecting that the reader doesn't have the vaguest idea of what anyone is actually saying. Readers will learn how to shmooze their way through such activities as meeting and greeting; eating and drinking; praising and finding fault; maintaining personal hygiene; going to the doctor; driving; parenting; getting horoscopes; committing crimes; going to singles bars; having sex; talking politics and talking trash. There's nothing in the world that can't be improved by translating it into Yiddish, and this book shows you how.--From publisher description.
