The New Joys of Yiddish


By Leo Rosten. Lawrence Bush (Editor) A hilarious updated lexicon. The revised edition of Rosten's 1968 "The Joys of Yiddish", now the de facto standard reference on this topic, is designed as a lexicon of Yiddish words and phrases that have been, are becoming, or should be incorporated into the English language. The work explores the nuances and complexities of language, clarifying the interrelationship between Yiddish and English (Yinglish, according to Rosten). With the recent renaissance of interest in Yiddish, and in keeping with a language that embodies the variety and vibrancy of life itself, Lawrence Bush has revised Leo Rosten's masterful work while retaining the spirit of the original with its wonderful jokes and tidbits of cultural history, and Talmudic and Biblical references. Enhanced by Hundreds of new entries and thoughtful commentary on how Yiddish has evolved over the years. Paperback. 496 pp.
