Should this go in the uneducated Chasidim thread?

As a programmer, I long for the day when I'll get bored out of programming, alas for now I'll have to watch the engineers doing it...

I know very well what klal-shprakh means. My point is that it's not a phrase used in spoken Yiddish conversation today (and forget about that ridiculous spelling).

And you can harp about the Yiddish you speak vs. the one spoken in Williamsburg for as long as you'd like, but the fact remains that Yiddish as a living language exists only in the Chassidish world - and I'm specifically EXCLUDING Chabad here. Regardless of how well you speak Yiddish, it is simply not the language lingua franca in CH et al today; the version of Yiddish spoken by Chabad is more archaic that what's spoken on the street (for better or for worse).

(And to be a bit pedantic, I haven't met a Yiddish speaker who doesn't know what a פאָר פֿאָלק is. I'll take the liberty to suggest that your accent threw them off.)

Proper Yiddish is mostly spoken in Europe (most notably Antwerp) IINM.

Is it? I haven't heard much of that. Have heard some French mixed in with Yiddish of people from France (though nowhere near the Williamsburg example above). I can't recall hearing much adulteration of the Yiddish spoken by people from Antwerp.

Just in case it's not clear, you need to click on his profile and read the first word of each of his last 150 tweets, which insanely include tweets announcing his father's passing.
