Hail, all book-lovers!
Any idea about this strange word? Sounds like Idish:
Mershnomozes

no idea, are you actually looking for this 'word' or are you just making something up?  If it is used in a context you might provide that.  I think you mean Yiddish.

Yes, "Yiddish", thanks :)

I simply heard one guy call another this way, like, "you, mershnomoze"
Pejorative, probably

I would assume it is a compound noun, mersh-nomoze, or mershno-moze
check a yiddish dictionary, maybe.
