English term or phrase: YA tegg-HI Vatchia!
Allrighty... Here it goes: (all in one breath)

My family's Czechislovakian and Lithuanian and they don't speak the languages anymore (everyone who did has passed away), but they like to scream assorted phrases they say their parents used to say to them --- supposedly it means "You Dirty Frog" --- how do you spell it? --- Is that literal? I've been wondering that for a while ---

Ok... Sorry about that. It's pronounced YAA TeG-Hí Vatchíia

How do you spell it?
Jeremy
Tu gyvate
Explanation:
The closest I can get to is "tu gyvate", or "you, snake!"

You dirty frog?
a toad is sometimes mentioned, not a frog. Tu rupûþe.

Sorry, can't think of anything else.

Okay, thanks a lot. I appreciate that. It seems to be the best I can get lately. I don't know. Mabye it's in Russian or something. I thought they spoke LITHUANIAN though. Hummm.... I'll keep trying. Thanks a lot. -Jeremy (by the way, every time I try to view Lithuanian it gets into the Nordic 's and such. How do I fix this?
