Yiddish Expressions 1.31

Master the Yiddish language with
 "Yiddish In 10 Lessons"

one that can't agree on anything, one always says the oppsite from what is said

אנשים שמתווכחים על כל דבר, הוא אומר כל דבר ההפך

אַז איך זאָג טאָג, זאָגט ער נאַכט

az ikh zog tog zogt er nakht

if I say day he says night

אם אני אומר יום הוא אומר לילה

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.
