Wex, Michael

Just Say Nu

Yiddish for Every Occasion (When English Just Won't Do)

€ 16.95

In his "New York Times" bestseller, "Born to Kvetch," author Michael Wex led readers on a hilariously edifying excursion through Yiddish culture and history. With "Just Say Nu," he shows us how to use this remarkable language to spice up conversations, stories, presentations, arguments, and more, when plain English will not suffice (including, of course, lots of delightful historical and cultural side trips along the way). There is, quite simply, nothing in the world that can't be improved by being translated into Yiddish. With "Just Say Nu," readers will learn how to shmooze their way through meeting and greeting, eating and drinking, praising and finding fault, maintaining personal hygiene, parenting, going to the doctor, committing crimes, going to singles bars, having sex, talking politics, talking trash, and a host of other mundane activities. Here also is a healthy schmear of optional grammar and the five most useful Yiddish words--what they mean, and how and when to use them in an entire conversation without anybody suspecting you don't have the vaguest idea about what you're actually saying.
