Pete Leihy
So there’s been Yiddish for a thousand years, and a lot of reform and standardisation of German (and Yiddish) over last couple of hundred years, and then there is Jews speaking ‘proper German’ in German-speaking places and circles… But is the rather simple, Prague German of Kafka ‘(proper) German’, ‘Judaeo-German’, some transliterated form of Yiddish, or something else?
