DOCUMENT INFO
Description: After the requisite initial bow to the issue that seems of inevitable interest to German-speakers - whether Yiddish is really not just a corrupted German dialect (most emphatically refuted here) - the authors take the reader on a tour of the fusion/component nature of Yiddish, its conditions of origin in immigrant communities in medieval Central Europe, the brief flourishing of Yiddish in sixteenth-century Italy, the exile and immigration of Yiddish-speakers to eastern Europe and the development of dialectal distinctions between East and West Yiddish (before the decline and demise of the latter), the rise of the Haskalah, Hasidism and its opponent in misnagdes, emigration from eastern Europe around the world, the Hebrew -Yiddish language conflicts, the postWWI eastern European blossoming of Yiddish-language culture, the Holocaust, Soviet language planning and the post- WWII situation, including along the way some brief attention to the phenomena of early Yiddish literature and later of the classic authors Sholem Abramovitsh, Sholem Aleichem, and Y L Peretz.
