The Origins of Modern Literary Yiddish

Dov-Ber Kerler

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the translation of Zholkve, which is an intricate mixture of modern Eastern Yiddish literature, with archaic and old literature components. The structure, which involves orthography, phonology, and morphology, is extensively discussed to describe these aspects. Orthography was mostly of old Yiddish form, such as the presence and absence of various stressed and unstressed vowels. However, spellings conformed more to High German patterns, which are mostly seen in Western Europe publications. There are also, some influences of mid-Eastern European components, such as the spelling of stressed vowels and consonants. Morphology, on the other hand, is mostly Eastern Yiddish in content, particularly Southeastern and mid-Eastern.

Keywords:   Zholkve, vowels, spelling
