@Roberta,
Oy veh.

Life. Don't talk to me about life.

Life is just one damn thing after another, that's what it is.


Until it isn't.

And there you aren't.

@dlowan,
I should worry about being dead? When you're dead, you don't got nuttin' to worry about. What kind of a life is that?

Inspired by Yiddish

Yiddish - a language once spoken by more than 10 million Jews - had a profound effect on American culture in the first half of the 20th Century.

It originated in central and eastern Europe - and spread to the United States when thousand of immigrants arrived in New York.

Zalmen Mlotek is the Artistic Director of the city's last surviving professional Yiddish theatre - the Folksbiene.

With the help of his piano, he has been telling Radio 3's Dennis Marks how the language influenced jazz music - and the likes of George and Ira Gershwin.

Yiddish: A Struggle for Survival will be broadcast on Radio 3 at 2140 on Sunday 30 November.
It will be available for seven days on the BBC iPlayer.

Slideshow by Paul Kerley. Production date 27 November 2008.

@Roberta,
Leave the window open in the background while you're doing something else. The slideshow should load - the little play arrow should appear. I know. Should should. It took a while on my slow little dial-up system, but it got itself going.

Ooooh, some fresh Hebonics posts! Surprised

This is one of my all time favourite A2K threads! Very funny!

Any possibility of coaxing some further Hebonic conversations out of you folk?

That is a wow of a small world!

Have you been to the Folksbiene? I'd really like to check it out on a trip to NYC.

@ehBeth,
No, I've never been there. But I had a job offer a few years back!

They've been dark the last couple of times I've been in NY, but I'm sure I'll get there eventually.

I'm digging it to.

My mother asked me where I got the word shvitzing (sp?) from. i can't for the life of me figure out where the hebonics came from and why I use it so much - neither can she. Seems natural.
