WHAT DOES CHACHKA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Tchotchke

Tchotchke is a small bauble or miscellaneous item. Depending on context, the term has a connotation of worthlessness or disposability as well as tackiness, and has long been used by Jewish-Americans and in the regional speech of New York City and elsewhere. The word may also refer to free promotional items dispensed at trade shows, conventions, and similar large events. Also, stores that sell cheap souvenirs in tourist areas like Times Square, Venice Beach, and Waikiki Beach in Hawaii are sometimes called "tchotchke shops". A common confusion is between the terms tchotchke and tsatske or rather tsatskele, with the diminutive ending -le. Both terms have the same Slavic root, but the tch- version stems from Russian, while the ts- originates in Polish. There is some debate within academia as to the true origin. In either case, tchotchke usually references useless trinkets, while tsatskele is more likely to mean a young girl or woman: if very young, she's "quite a handful", even when used lovingly; when a bit older, it is somebody using her charms in order to reach her goals.
