yid | Yid
This page is about the slang term yid | Yid
an offensive, derogatory word meaning a Jewish person
- When I was a kid my friend Ben was sometimes called a yid by older boys, and I didn't understand what it meant.
- The word "Yid" is derogatory and insulting to Jewish people and it should never be used.
Origin: Probably short for "Yiddish", which is a language spoken by Jewish people in Europe, or "Yiddisher", which means a speaker of Yiddish.
Warning! This is very bad language. If you are a non-native speaker, you are advised not to use it. (You could cause resentment or anger if you use it inappropriately.)
