הײמיש

The definition of היימיש needs to be expanded to include the contemporary meaning of this word in Hasidic Yiddish - to refer to the Hasidic or Haredi community with its particular practices and strictnesses. Perhaps with an underlying sense of "the people we feel at home with".

Azoy zaynen nito dray doyres in a dor ?

בענקעלע

The Verterbukh English definition is "fam. report s.o. to, tell on s.o. to". Please explain the English, what are these abbreviations? Thanks.

פּאַלאַץ

Hm, the dictionary makes it look like it's stressed on the penultimate syllable in singular (like Polish pałac) but I never hear people say it that way?

פֿאַרפֿעלן

Falkovich uses it to mean "omit." e.g. pp. 326-9 of his "yidish: fonetik, grafik, leksik un gramatik."

האַרמאָשקע

Is this ever used to mean accordion (like Russian гармошка) ?

אינהאַלט

I find it's often better to translate as "meaning" in more abstract contexts:
זוכן דעם טיפֿן אינהאַלט פֿון לעבן
searching for deep meaning

באַזעצן

Where's באַזעצן זיך? I only see באַזעצן.
