MENDELE Yiddish Language and Literature
Personal Notices and Announcements

June 3, 2009
To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:
1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Definition

There is a word in Sholem Aleykhem's story "Dos Meserl" which I can't find 
in any Yiddish dictionary. The word is "gegart".  It has been suggested 
that this word could possibly mean "wanting" or "desiring" which does fit 
the context. I would appreciate some sort of confirmation.
