Every Wednesday we’ll post some Hebrew words or idioms that make perfect sense in Hebrew. Than we’ll make sense of it in English too, hence the name: Hebringlish – a hybrid just for you!

Yalla comes from Arabic and translates as ‘let’s go’. It’s meaning is the same but when you add another Yalla to the mix,AKA Yalla Yalla, it becomes ‘move it’, ‘whatever!’, ‘OK allready’!

Dalgi, Dafdefi translate as ‘skip’, ‘leaf through it’. It actually means move on, get to the next subject, Yalla Yalla.

Shava or Chaticha translate as ‘equal’, ‘wourthy’ or ‘piece’, meaning a good-looking female, broad, hoochi coochy (but NOT a mama).

Please feel free to ask, offer new slang words and generally comment, we are looking forward to hear from you:)
