What is it about Brits using the word "kosher" all the time? I realiz(s)e, of course, that it's a very useful word, but I didn't think our language had infiltrated into British English as much as it had into American.. What's next? "Hutzpah?"

Both kosher and hutzpah are used here in Boston a lot by pretty much everyone. There are a bunch of other Yiddish words that are part of the common lexicon, like tush or shlep.

Yeeees, that's what I'm saying, Yiddish has become part of the American English, but I didn't know it was used as much in British English!

Oh :).
Probably all the American TV shows that they watch helped with that. Globalization!

You are probably right. That's what my husband thinks too - Hollywood's influence.
