While cruising on the Ha'aretz web site, I found this hilarious guide to street Hebrew - The Hebrew they never taught you. I think that most of these words come from Army slang, Arabic, or Russian. I knew some of them but the more outre or more Army ones were less familiar. Ahla!


  1. I saw that too and tried them out. Some I knew. My browser didn't show the Hebrew (if there was Hebrew) so I had to sound out the English transliteration.

  2. There was Hebrew - at first it appeared in the wrong direction. When I finally figured out the correct text encoding, it gave it to me.
