    Whatever the phrase may be, it can be replaced with "BLAH BLAH BLAH" without losing any meaning at all.

    Blinky.. have you been listening to the bochurim talk on their way to yeshiva?

    I don't recall you mentioning brothers or BILs, and that last sentence sounded VERY yeshivish!

    Your statement goofa, makes my first point. Regarding my tzvaita memra, it seems like your yeshivishe shprach got removed C"V! Nuch a sugya, slightly related, where I work, nebach, I'm the only frumma guy. So all this shprach gets bottled up until I have the zechia of such a matziv to luz ois!

Oib nisht - they would have a geshkame teirutz in Shomayim nuch a hundred tzvonig why they didn't speak yeshivish shprach. Uber vibalt, heint, they were oichet gebentched with der zelbeh hent vi Yiddin, heint, they have no amaslah & b'chal no teirutz far vuss zei reddin nisht in yeshivishe shprach.

    blinky - you need to purchase a copy of the Yeshivish Shprach-English dictionary. It not only contains the meanings of all yeshivish words, it even has all hand & head motions (with diagrams)that will help you in your day-to-day chakiros & shmoozings....

    "I CANT UNDERSTAND A WORD YOU ARE SAYING!!"

    Your comment about this being a foreign language reminded me of a story told about a Rosh Yeshiva (R’ Kalmanovitz, I think):

    His approach to gevirim was straight and to the point. He would say, “ I need X dollars to build a <whatever the project was>

    One time, a gevir with whom he enjoyed a close friendship asked, “ Why is it that you come in and go right to the dollars, while other fundraisers go into the details about what a great mitzvah I can be a part of, how I’m able to assure great things for future doros, ect”

    The Rosh replied,
    “They talk torah, torah torah, but what they mean is money, money money.
    I talk money, money, money, but what I mean is torah, torah, torah!”

    So yes, Blinky, all this “yeshivish shprach” is a bit confusing, but when you sift thru the whole bucket, its all pretty simple to understand. Because everyone is saying the same 5-10 things.

    "Whatever the phrase may be, it can be replaced with "BLAH BLAH BLAH" without losing any meaning at all."

    Only if you don't understand yiddish and/or aramaic.

    Best shprach I've ever heard: Not a sfek sfaika of a hava amina!
