Description

This text is important to the fields of Yiddish literature and linguistics, and also for the history of German-Jewish relations, highlighted by the irony of an anti-Semitic work preserving a Yiddish linguistic resource. The present volume includes a reproduction of the original text in a modern orthography and an English translation, together with an introduction, notes, and a glossary of the many Hebrew words in the text. This work presents the first modern edition and English translation of the early 18th century anti-Semitic farce Judischer Sprach-Meister ("The Jewish Language Tutor"). Written in a Romanized orthography with a facing German translation, this West Yiddish text describes a conversation between two Jews on various aspects of Jewish belief and practice. For these reasons this edition of the Judischer Sprach-Meister will be a welcome addition for specialists in Jewish Studies and generalists alike.
