On the dailywritingtips.com site, I came across the page related to the adoption of the Yiddish words in the English language -- in American English mostly, I assume.
Since the meanings of all those words are explained quite clearly, I need neither examples of their usage nor situations where they may be used. The link to the web page is attached just so that those who might feel like answering could see what exactly I'm asking about.
My questions are these:
Are some words of the Yiddish origin really commonly used in colloquial speech in (some parts of) the USA?
With regard to your personal experience and the place of residence, what several words of the said origin are, in your opinion, worth being taken note of and remembered as widely (relatively) used in informal interaction, in books, movies, radio shows, etc?
Footnote: This is the edited version of the question which was put on hold some time ago. Before that, it had gotten one good answer and a couple of very helpful comments. I'd very much like to have some more, so any help will be highly appreciated.
