Can someone translate into English the phrase "Shtimmer Bebic".  I
believe it is Yiddish or perhaps Hungarian or Polish in origin.
There is no answer at this time.

Shtimmer is a Yiddish word that means someone who has a speech defect
of deficiency, probably related to the German word "stumm" = mute, as
in deaf-mute.
  (Sorry, but only the cache version would open.)

Bebic is a Slavic family name, perhaps specifically Croatian. There is
also a small town in Hungary of that name.

Would this make sense in your context:  a person with the surname
Bebic who had a speech deficiency?
