Correct spelling of Tuckas

Yes I have nothing more important or pressing in my life at the moment other than to ask you kind hearted folks if any of you know the most correct way to spell the Hebrew or Yiddish word Tucas aka, tush or tushie as it's known in other areas. In another thread tuckas, tuchas, tukas, tookus, and some others were tossed around. I was wanting to open this up to all and see to what consensus we might arrive.

Thanks all,

Somehow, before I even opened this thread I knew this was you, buzzard !
Do you suppose this word is in the American Standard or Webster's Dictionary? I think it is spelled toosh or tush. However, I did not even know this word was Hebrew or Yiddish. Isnt the American language fascinating ?!

No. I am an American and I speak American. It is similar to English but not quite the same.

Buzzard, I would spell it "tuchus." However, the "ch" sound is not the English "ch," it is somewhere between an English "k" and clearing your throat. "Tush" is a different word, originally an expression of contempt, although I wouldn't be surprised if it had the same root. (Without looking it up, my guess would be an Old High German root, as Yiddish is a dialect of German and Old English owes a lot to German as well.)

link goes to a list of Yiddish loan-words to English, for those who are interested!

Kisha, along with client services director Lisa Leone and production manager Cathi Christopher Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , were confined to a 10-by-10-foot room backstage at the Auditorium Theatre, working with two heat-press machines and thousands of names on clear film in folders
  • Dallas Cowboys Jersey
  • , organized by team.

    "Even though we pretty much knew who was going to go in the first round, we still made all the names
  • Detroit Lions Jersey
  • , just to be sure, because there always seems to be some anomaly every year," Kisha said.The trio typically make two jerseys for each player: One to hold on stage and another that's destined to be cut into pieces for trading cards
  • Houston Texans Jersey
  • .They bring six jerseys for every team — all with the No. 1
  • Oakland Raiders Jersey
  • on the back — to account for a team having an unlikely three first-round picks.

    Until 2014, they brought only four jerseys per team but in 2013, the Minnesota Vikings traded up and had three first-round draft picks, which meant six jerseys. When the Vikings made their move
  • Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey
  • , Stahls' grabbed an extra jersey from a mannequin in New York City's Radio City Music Hall, where the draft was held.The group gets early word of draft picks from an NFL representative as soon as the pick is submitted by the team
  • Miami Dolphins Jersey
  • . Then the two-minute drill begins: Leone grabs the correct name from a box — this year the box contained 1,600 names
  • Minnesota Vikings Jersey
  • and team possibilities — and hands it off to be pressed by Kisha and Christopher, in a play they've run repeatedly.

    Names are only prepared for first-round prospects who have confirmed they will attend the event
  • New Orleans Saints Jersey
  • . Thursday night, 25 athletes attended.Stahls' gets the list of confirmed attendees about two weeks in advance.Each team has its own unique font NFL , which means 32 versions of every name.The company spends at least six weeks preparing for the event.

    Despite the pressure
  • New York Giants Jersey
  • , the company considered Thursday just another day on the job. Friday, the Stahls' team was on-site at the NFL Shop in Draft Town as part of a larger team that produces on-demand personalized apparel for fans
  • New York Jets Jersey
  • ."This year went really great," Kisha said. "You're always nervous though, you know? You've still got butterflies. And (you're) happy when it's done."
