Yiddish Expressions 1.26

Yiddish In 10 Lessons!! Not Only For Chanukah!!
A Great Way To Express Yourself!!  In YIDDISH!!

Express It In Yiddish:
Someone who thinks he is special, distinguished, distinctive, or G-d's gift to the world, or that he came up with an idea that he thinks no one else did

מישהו שחושב שהוא מיוחד או שהוא מתנת אלקים לעולם או אחד שיש לו רעיון שהוא חושב שאף אחד אחר לא חשב על זה

ער מיינט ער איז אַ יחיד אין מאָסקווע

er meynt er iz a yokhid in moskve

He thinks he is the only person in Moscow

הוא חושב שהוא יחיד במוסקבה

Yiddish is rich with expressions. In fact, sometimes the same phrase can be said in a number of different ways. I try to bring the unique ones, where it is is not obvious from the literal translation what the expression means.
