Dialects of the Yiddish language: papers from the Second Annual Oxford Winter Symposium in Yiddish Language and Literature, 14-16 December 1986
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.
