Subject: RE: Vu Iz Dos Gesele
Thanks for pointing that out, Abraham. I think I posted that version from the Mlotek book too late at night. I used my scanner to copy the text, and I did a horrible job of proofreading. I think I corrected all of my mistakes in that post, and it should be right now. The proper word is "vemen" (Mr. Scanner copied it as "yemen," and also got the word "mil" incorrect). I think they you'd agree that "meydele" "meidele" are both correct transliterations of the same word, and that there are various spellings of "taykhele" [Teichlein (little pond) in German] .

I will make sure that Mr. Scanner receives appropriate punishment and re-education. He usually does a very good job for me, but perhaps he doesn't have enough experience with Yiddish.....
