  • I have heard this as Yiddish /tʃatʃkə/. I don't know how it's spelled in Yiddish, but in English I've seen it7 as tchotchke if I recall correctly. I have never seen this spelling, not that that means anything.—msh210 20:50, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
There two synonyms צאַצקע (tsatske) and טשאַטשקע (tshatshke), both meaning trinket, toy, bauble. —Stephen 02:47, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
The RfVd definition says it is a commercial "gift" of little value. Assuming that chotskie is an alternate spelling of "tshatshke", I didn't think the "commercial gift" aspect will stand up to verification. 2 Groups hits WOULD support this (by accident), but the sole g.b.c. hit is German (snippet only). I'm guessing it's a proper name. No Scholar, News, Blog hits. DCDuring 01:25, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
All of the other 3 alternate spellings of tchotchke get at least 9 g.b.c. hits, some from dictionaries. I think that this one will not be missed. DCDuring 01:34, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
