List Members:  First, I'm sorry that I've cross-posted.  A friend and I were
wondering over lunch whether hubris (Greek) and chutzpah (Hebrew) could be
cognates.  I thought chutzpah was Yiddish and therefore couldn't be related to
hubris.  I appear to be wrong -- it is Hebrew.  Any thoughts?
Best Regards,
