I don’t know whether Yiddish is to be considered “kadosh,” or not, but it sure beats English or Hebrew when it comes to describing people, their personalities, and situations where psychology comes into play. For instance, think of the worlds of meaning wrapped up just in the word, “fargin.” I didn’t learn Yiddish until I was older, but I was amazed at its resources for describing people and human situations.
