I just bought one of those t-shirts for my five-year-old at a garage sale,

perfect for her.  She rarely stops chattering, and I am not exaggerating.  A
very nice t-shirt with colorful embroidery, btw.

Did we already address here why people started using "yak" to mean chatter
in the US?  I presume it did not come from the animal in any way, shape or
