Miscellanea

  1. Goy is the standard Hebrew biblical term for a "nation", including that of Israel. Long before Roman times it had also acquired the meaning of someone who is not Jewish. The latter is also its meaning in Yiddish. It is also used to refer to individuals from non-Jewish religious or ethnic groups; when used in this way in English, it occasionally has pejorative connotations. However, many people do not see the term "goy" as any more or less offensive than the term "gentile".> However, to avoid any perceived offensive connotations, writers may use the better-known English terms "gentile" or "non-Jew".
  2. Goy a.k.a. Goundo Language: Goundo is a nearly extinct Adamawa language of Chad. It is only spoken by older adults.
