Date: Thu, 30 Dec 1993 17:36:53 -0600 From: Dennis Baron Subject: Re: Yiddish in NY? Heaven Forbid I grew up in NYC (Queens) mid-late 40s, 50s. In our apartment building everything went down the incinerator. When my parents bought a house and moved further out in Queens we put the gobbage in a can behind the house, where it was routinely mashed by the sanitation trucks. Trash, rubbish, wet, dry, it was all gobbage to me, till I moved to Mass. in early 60s and had to separate (but I forget the terms we used there). And a reminder for returnees from ADS (ADS) in Toronto: can someone post the new words entries and winners?
