Modern research on dialects of the Yiddish language focuses in many instances upon Western Yiddish and the application of Yiddish dialectology to the study of older Yiddish and non-Yiddish monuments. The Second Oxford Winter Symposium on Yiddish Language and Literature reflects this trend and this collection of papers from the conference explores a wide range of contemporary research in the field.


For students of Judaica, linguistics, German philology and Slavic studies.
