Actually spelled Schnorrer or shnorrer and is a Yiddish term meaning "beggar" or "sponger".1 The word Schnorrer also occurs in German to describe a person who frequently asks for little things, like cigarettes or little sums of money, without offering a return, and has thus come to mean freeloader. The English usage of the word denotes a sly chiseler who will get money out of another any way he can, often through an air of entitlement.
