Max Weinreicha€™s History of the Yiddish Language is a classic of Yiddish scholarship and is the only comprehensive scholarly account of the Yiddish language from its origin to the present. A monumental, definitive work, History of the Yiddish Language demonstrates the integrity of Yiddish as a language, its evolution from other languages, its unique properties, and its versatility and range in both spoken and written form. Originally published in 1973 in Yiddish by the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research and partially translated in 1980, it is now being published in full in English for the first time. In addition to his text, Weinreicha€™s copious references and footnotes are also included in this two-volume set.A340-34 1116.7 RABBINIC GLOSSES: Germayzem, \ 132117.19; panclironisni in , . ... 43 RABBIS (See also names of specific rabbis; Scholars; sermons); acronyms for, A()7on8.8.8; anti-rabbinic linguistic terms, Assgns.lg; asceticism.
