knaidel/kneydl/kneydel

I took a little break, but thought this week was the time to restart the Yiddish word of the week.
This weeks word: SONY DSC/(plural– …lach) — a Jewish dumpling– aka- a matzah ball.
Eg.- Can I have another knaidel please? Your knaidlach are delicious!

This week’s word was the winning word in last week’s annual Scripps National Spelling Bee. The winner was a boy named Arvind Mahankali. However, Yiddish scholars dispute this as the correct transliteration. Interesting that the winning word can be one whose spelling is not so clear… See the NYT article here: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/01/nyregion/some-say-spelling-of-a-winning-word-wasnt-kosher.html?_r=0
