- From Yiddish שייגעץ (sheygets) (Wiktionary)
- Yiddish sheygets, from Hebrew šeqeṣ, blemish; see šqṣ in Semitic roots. (American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition)
“‘Sheqetz’ or ‘shegetz’ is a Hebrew-based synonym for goy (www. thefreedictionary.com/goy), which is why phil may not understand it.”
“Sheqetz and shegetz (shaygetz is a better transliteration) are two different words in two different languages meaning two different things.”
“The Megiddo Modern Hebrew-English Dictionary, published in Israel, correctly defines shegetz as follows: ‘unclean animal; loathsome creature, abomination colloquial - pronounced shaygets wretch, unruly youngster; Gentile youngster’.”
