    If he's "Moreh Yeladim", why do you greet him in Arabic, Chig? :?

    I prefer Yoreh (Beh)Yeladim(not all things sound better in English, appearantly).
    In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

    I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

    You're a native speaker. I make do with what I can. Calquing isn't exactly a science, anyway.

    I thought "yallah" was Arabic.

    Dune has more Arabic than Hebrew.

    Get over it, mein Schatz. :roll:

    "Yallah" is used as a slang by practically everyone here.

    And the version I suggested means "shoots/shooter of kids", which is always better IMO. :twisted:

    What does the other version mean? Shooter of dogs? I know that wouldn't sit well with you. :wink:

    Witty? Why? :? It's like Chig calling himself by whatever his job is(English teacher?).
