Yiddish slang


n., pl. goyβ€’im

Usage: This term is usually used with disparaging intent, implying a contempt for the attitudes, traits, and customs of non-jews. It is loxism, the same as using "Nigger". Although it almost always connotes a large degree of condescension, again, just like "nigger". Usually the context, such as the use of a qualifying adjective, will show the intent of the speaker.

β€”n. Disparaging. (a loxist term used to refer to a gentile or non-jewish person.)
