Subject: RE: BS: regional uk slang
Sorry to interrupt this flow of banter, but just remembered that as students in the East End of London, we adopted quite a few of those Yiddish terms and other not-so-Yiddish phrases:
Can I schnorrer five bob?
It’s a real schlepp dahn Stepney Green
New dress: nice piece of schmatta!
And expressing surprise: So soon, already, my life!
