Tell me please how in Idish floor thank you

If i understand correctly you wish to know how to say the word floor in Yiddish? And perhaps also the word thank you?

If you are talking about the floor of your apartment that you walk on, it is ‘podlogeh’. The accent is on the first syllable. If you are talking about how many floors in a building, it is ‘shtok’ (pronounced like stock but with the ‘sh’ sound in the beginning.)

The word for thank you is ‘a dank’ pronounced like the ‘u’ in ‘dunking’.

All the best!
