His English is not good so we should use more clear phrasing when responding.

"i go lidless (without a lid) with my cilogear packs all the time. if i don't need the volume or the segregated storage space why schlep (carry) the extra weight."

English? How about Yiddish? on 05/11/2012 19:14:58 MDT Print View

"Shlepp" is a Yiddish word. While a guy from China might struggle mightily with the English language, toss in a Yiddishism or two and the poor fellow is going to sink without a bubble.

you got a problem with schlep? on 05/14/2012 07:45:05 MDT Print View

you underestimate and do our friend from china a disservice. you need to get with the times and http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/16/magazine/16wwln-safire-t.html?_r=1 and realize that *schlep* like many other words in english may have foreign origin, but is now part of the language. it wouldn't surprise me if schlep was part of the chinese language. and if you really wanted to be helpful you could have found the translation of *to schlep* in chinese http://en.bab.la/dictionary/english-chinese/schlep 挟带(insert wink here).

There was a funny show on PBS, about words and American language. In the opening sequence they started in NY and asked people what "schlep" meant. Everyone got it, transport, haul, etc. They headed south and it faded until they got nothing but "I don't knows." Then, as they got to TX it started to find meaning again ... or at least everyone told the same joke ... "I don't know her name, but I schlep with her last night!"

(schlep has a a literary depth, and passes my spell check, but English is a wide and flexible thing.)
