meshíguene would be the obvious spanish spelling.

 

Meshigene just seems like how an Israeli would spell it.

Should it be meshuga?

 

In any event, in Argentina, how about Judía Loca?

Just doesn’t come up if you search for it under that name. It’s findable of course.

Of course in Spanish, we now know, it would all be different.

It's both the spanish and the choice of yiddish dialect (shu vs shi) 

 

Nothing compared to being able to tell if someone is from south central Bukovina based on their matzo brei being gefrischte matze.

I knew I should've paid attention during Hebrew school. Or something along those lines.

Since "they" officially became a singular pronoun yesterday, all this is moot.

Glad that the dictionary finally caught up to Shakespeare and Dickens: https://languagelog....du/nll/?p=24504

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

"There's someone waiting for you here."

 

"Is it a he or a she? because otherwise I just can't compose my response. If only there were pronouns for just this situation..."
