Express It In Yiddish: throwing a temper tantrum, a flare-up, an outburst, a hissy fit

איך מגדירים ביידיש התקף זעם, התפרצות זעם, התפרעות פתאומית, איבוד שליטה מרוב כעס






קאָפּען דאָס לײַלעך


kopen dos laylekh


kicking the sheet


לבעוט ולרקוע ברגל בסדין




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.
