>From Moravia, my father remembered not only 'oorl' [IPA: o:rl], lit. 'uncircumcised', practically '[male] Gentile' (a synonym of 'goy') - but even 'oorelte' [IPA: 'o:rlte], 'female Gentile'; note that in the Southern Transitional Yiddish dialect (of Moravia [eastern Czechia] and western Slovakia, [easternmost Austrian] Burgenland and western Hungary), a female 'goy' was 'goyte' not 'goye' as in Litvish Yiddish. How was Czernowitzer / Bukovinian Yiddish on this point? I think I've heard a Hasid in London talking at length on his mobile telephone about 'di goyte', and they are mostly southerners (Romania, Ukraine) by origin.
