You are right it went from German to Yiddish to English. It changed form slightly from the German to the Yiddish.

RE: somewhat disappointed
Still used in certain parts of Switzerland, BTW, along with Kvell. Yiddish is by and large German, Russian, Dutch and distorted Hebrew shoved together with a broken German grammar form, a pidgin language. What makes it fun is the patchwork, for instance Geh nicht hacken mein chainick - don't bang my teakettle (stop bugging me or stop ranting on) - the bulk of the sentence is German, the grammar is Germanic but distorted, but hacken is Dutch, chainick is Russian, or a corruption of Russian. Grab whatever is good and string it together. Between my wife and I we speak nine languages, maybe fourteen, if you count ancient languages and certain dialects, and we communicate in a sort of language of our own, using the best word from each to convey our meaning (ancient Greek has a lot of good words - nous ,for instance). No one else can follow us. Yiddish sort of came about the same way...

RE: somewhat disappointed
While we are discussing languages, can anyone tell me the correct meaning of the word - kerfuffle? I watch a television series that is called "Judge Judy" and she uses that word quite often. The definition of fight doesn't seem to fit the word exactly, but I can not find it in Webster's dictionary either.

Thanks OpalRose, I like learning a new word now and then. It helps to understand the conversation on the television show.

Yes, I do also. I think some of her 'sayings' are so neat. For instance she says "you can't fix stupid" or "beauty fades but dumb is forever." Neither of my grown sons seem to like her program.

RE: somewhat disappointed
One of the reasons I made the appointment with the sleep lab last month was because after an upper endoscopy, the anesthesiologist told me that they put in a breathing tube because I stopped breathing after they put me under. I was asleep at the time and so don't really know the details of what happened, but the picture I get is that I had an apnea event after going under and they panicked...I mean, hard to picture having OSA with a big endoscope going through my throat, so I have to wonder if it was really necessary. No harm done other than a sore throat after waking, and I suspect that the event was a factor in my insurance funding the full in house sleep lab rather than the home version, but still there are risks to any procedure so you don't want unnecessary ones.
Anyway, I guess my point is that it is probably a really good idea to tell your surgeon you have OSA, as there could be consequences to stopping breathing on an operating table.

My surgeon did know about my sleep apnea, or maybe I should say I told the admitting nurse and whether or not the surgeon saw that information remains to be seen. I hope you feel better and that the outcome of your tests will be favorable. Welcome to the forum. Smile
