Kobi wrote me with the following interesting question:
In Hebrew people use the word שויצר to describe a person who boasts. I found the word in Raphael’s dictionary but I have no idea if it’s a credible source.
shvits verb, participle ge…t, sweat, perspire adjectival form with -ik, adverbial complementdurkh
shvitser noun, plural in -s, gender m, braggart
I wonder where shvitzer comes from and if there is more to know about this word.
I wonder too; anybody know?
