Who speaks Yiddish?
Approximately 4 million people use Yiddish all over the world. Yiddish belongs to the group of the West Germanic languages constituting part of the Indo-European language family. It is a language used by Ashkenazi Jews, i.e. Jews who live in Central and Eastern Europe. It is also spoken by Jews living in the United States, where we may find the majority of this language’s users. Other countries in which people speaking Yiddish live are: France, Germany, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Australia.
History of the Yiddish language
Yiddish is in principle a mix of languages. It was formed around the 10th century in Germany on the basis of the Middle High German dialect with the addition of elements from the Hebrew, Slavic and Romance languages. It is sometimes referred to as the Ashkenazi language. This language is traditionally written in the Hebrew alphabet. Nowadays, it is also possible to meet Yiddish written in the Latin alphabet. The Early Yiddish Period dates back to the 10th century, when large groups of Jews arrived at the areas of the Rhine. In contact with the local Germanic population, the process of the creation of a new language started. The next important stage in the Yiddish history was the 13th century, which was the witness to the migration of the Jewish population to Central and Eastern Europe, mainly to the Czech and Polish lands. As a result, Yiddish started absorbing a large amount of Slavic elements. The language in its current form began to form at the end of the 19th century and its development was interrupted by the outbreak of World War II.
Use of the Yiddish language in business
Due to the fact that Yiddish is a language without the official status in any country in the world, its role in business and economic activities may be completely omitted. It is a language that currently does not function in business, trade or international relationships, and its users are scattered all over the world.
