Yiddish

A combination of Hebrew, German and Slavic, reached its greatest heights immediately after WW1, but then began a slow, but steady, decline.  Before the Holocaust, some 11 million Jews spoke Yiddish, whose closest kin is Middle High German.  Yiddish is also called "Judeo-German" -- which puts it in a class with Judeo-Spanish, Judeo-Arabic, Judeo-Parsi, and many other Jewish variants on local languages.

Yiddish is a variant on High German (largely understandable today by those who speak other high German dialects), with a varied admixture of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Slavic words and phrases, and some borrowed more recently from French and English.  Yiddish vocabulary and pronunciation varied widely by country of residence and by social class.  The better educated Yiddish speakers tended to use more contemporaneous Germanic terms in preference to the more medieval words originally absorbed by Yiddish From a posting by Michael Bernet

It is the most important Jewish language, next to Hebrew. Although there have been many attempts to revive this this beautiful language, it has nearly disappeared.  The oldest known printed Yiddish is in a Worms, Germany prayer book from the year 1272: "gut tak im betag s wer dis makhazor in bes hakneses trag Yiddish is written in Hebrew characters.

Yiddish today, is spoken by fewer than 1 million people in the world.  It is not an official state language in any nation.  And it carries a reputation as the vernacular of poor, illiterate villagers.  But the mame loshn, or mother tongue of Ashkenazi Jews, has found a home in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius.
www.judaicvilnius.com

"Around the world, wherever Jews have lived, they have spoken somewhat differently from the non-Jews around them. Their languages have differed by as little as a few Hebrew words or as much as a highly variant grammar. There has been a good deal of research on a number of Jewish languages, including Yiddish, Judeo-Spanish, Judeo-Arabic, Judeo-Italian, Jewish English, and Jewish Neo-Aramaic. This website displays some of this research and the scholars who create it."  I am impressed with this site and so will you

List of English Words of Yiddish Origin
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mishpucha 

 

Farshtaist?

Do you understand Yiddish was the secret code, therefore I don't farshtaist.
 
A biseleh maybe here and there, the rest has gone to waste.
  
Sadly when I hear it now, I only get the gist.
  
My bobeh spoke it beautifully; but me, I am tsemisht.
  
So och un vai as I should say, or even oy vai iz mir.

Though my pisk is lacking Yiddish, it's familiar to my ear.
  
And I'm no Chaim Yonkel, in fact I was shtick naches.

But when it comes Yiddish though, I'm talking out of mytoches.
  
Es iz a shandeh far di kinder that I don't know it better.  
(Though it's really nishkefelecht when one needs to write a letter)

But when it comes to characters there's really no contention.
  
No other linguist can compete with honorable menshen.
    
They have nebbishes and nebechels and others without mazel.
  
Then too shmendriks and shlemiels and let's not forget shlimazels.  

These words are so precise and descriptive to the listener.  
So much better than a pill is to call someone farbissener.  
Or that a brazen woman would be better called chaleria.  
And you'll agree farklempt says more than does hysteria.  
I'm not haken dir a tsheinik and I hope I'm not a kvetch.  
But isn't mieskeit kinder than to call someone a wretch?  
Mitten derinnen, I hear bobbeh say.  
It's nechtiker tog, don't fear.  
To me you're still a maiven.  
Zol zein shah, don't fill my ear.  
Ah lieben ahf dein kepel.  
I don't mean to interrupt.  
But you are speaking narishkeit. 
And a gezunt auf dein kop!

Most likely the Holocaust helped make the language lose it's appeal, but also the fact that many survivors emigrated to other countries where they picked up the native language.  We see that today, with the emigration of thousands of former Russian and Ukrainian Jews now living in the United States.  Yes they still do speak Russian --- not Yiddish ---but are more likely learning and speaking more English then Yiddish.

Hebrew, German, France, Italy and Spain 
All of these countries have served to directly, or indirectly, influence the Yiddish language.  It can be safely said that since its "Modern Period" (1892 to the present), the major components of Yiddish have been basically German, Hebrew, Russian, Polish and some Spanish.  The resultant mame loshn (mother tongue) has revolved mainly around them.  Yiddish today, has had a great influence on the English language.  Think about it.  How many familiar words do we use today, that trace its roots to Yiddish?

With one click, you can select an English word and receive the Yiddish counterpart, or vice versus.  You'll have, as a reference for the future: Expressions In Yiddish; Numbers, Days, Months, Seasons, Calendar; Transliterations; Expressions; Advice, Laments, etc; Relationships with others; put downs and retorts; Work, Money, Poverty; God, Life, Family; Curses, Umgliks; Common Sense and Ethics. 

In due time, more words will be added and hopefully we'll be able to save the Yiddish language for future generations.  After all, for a Jewish genealogist, Yiddish is important for our research and what about Fressen?
