Author Cites Jewish-English
As Replacement for Yiddish

NEW YORK — A new
hybrid of English is emerg-
ing to go with "Black
English" and "Chicano
English." It is being dubbed
by linguists as "Jewish
English."
"Jewish English" has
been studied by Sol Stein-
metz, graduate of Yeshiva
University - and general
editor of the "World Book
Dictionary." Steinmetz is
also the author of "Yiddish
and English: A Century of
Yiddish in America,"
scheduled to be published
late this year by Clarence L.
Barnhart, Inc.
Steinmetz
discussed
"Jewish English" in an arti-
cle recently published in
"American Speech: A Quar-
terly of Linguistic Usage."
In the article, Steinmetz
said the people who make
the greatest use of "Jewish
English" are. Orthodox
Jews, especially the Or-
thodox who live in the, New
York area.
He noted that, although
the modern Orthodox
have become "by and
large English speakers,"
many are, in varying de-
grees, Yiddish-English
bilinguals. Because many
Orthodox youths study in
yeshivas, this use of
"Jewish English" is re-
inforced, Steinmetz said.
"Yeshiva faculties con-
sist, in the main, of bilingu-
als who regularly in-
tersperse Yiddish and He-
brew words and expressions
in their English," Steinmetz
said, "and the resulting
hybrid forms are adapted
and , internalized by their
pupils."

Friday, July 10, 1981 61

"In light of wat we have
learned so far about 'Jewish
English,' " Steinmetz said,
"it would seem that we have
in this vernacular more
than just the barely percep-
tible beginnings of a Jewish
language.
" 'Jewish English,' could
be seen as a replacement of
Yiddish by American de-
scendents of Yiddish speak-
ers, but it may also be more
than that." Steinmetz said
the whole subject should be
given more thoughtful and
thorough study.
