Hi Susan,

I agree with you about "for me;" it's not a natural or facile expression in our language, and in German it is to my ear a bit of shading that doesn't really need translating at the expense of other more important elements. I was simply arguing that, perhaps thanks to Yiddish, it is conceivable in modern English. Nuff said.

Cheers,
John
