Title:Hooray for Yiddish - A Book about English
Yiddish hasn't taken over English, but it has a beachhead. Rosten will guide you around, point out the latest infiltrations, and keep you safe from harm. It's a mitzva! It's a joy! Here is the rich, colourful, and gloriously irreverent world of Yiddish and the riotous English that came out of it, the only language that answers a question with a question: 'Does this book have jokes?' 'Does this book have jokes...!'
