The Origins of Modern Literary Yiddish

Dov-Ber Kerler

Oxford University Press

Published late eighteenth-century works were said to be from the Southeastern region. Thus it is understandable that there is a mixture of different regional dialects present, such as the pan-eastern, Northeastern and Southeastern. Even though a few of these works were also published in the mideastern region, there seems to be minimal influence on them. Morphology in these texts was found to be predominantly Southeastern, although this chapter discusses forms and structures of the Northeastern and mideastern dialect, such as word order and other components of syntax. It is said that the agglutinative word order can be likened to an archaic feature, and the more agglutinative the word order is, the more it is linguistically archaic.

Keywords:   morphology, dialects, syntax
