Yiddish Questions for Jewish Mamas

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a couple of questions about some Yiddish words that I've encountered- but it's hard to google them if you don't know how to spell them! If anyone could provide the correct spelling and/or clarify pronunciation or definition, I'd appreciate it.

Mozzik/muzzik- means scoundrel/rascal, affectionately "You little muzzik!"

Cuppydown/kappidown- My cousin says this when a baby rests its head on someone's shoulder- she got it from a Jewish famliy she babysits for. Not sure of the exact definition.

Thanks,
Sarah

mazek = mischievous child

keppe = head. She's saying "head down" when the baby rests on her shoulder. Sweet!!
