militant jewish love and rage
So sorry for the delay in answering this! I’m ashamed to say it languished in my drafts folder for several days while I was doing other things :( Anyway!
So with the caveat that I am far from fluent in Yiddish, the following are the best resources i know of Yiddish language learning.
College Yiddish, Uriel Weinreich’s epic Yiddish-as-a-second-language text is really essential. If you can buy it, do.
YiddishPop.com, which is completely adorable, is good for interactive language practice online
yiddishdictionaryonline.com is exactly what it sounds like. Not the most extensive dictionary, but if you combine it with google translate and College Yiddish, altogether a good resource.
Less navigable but more extensive in scope is Harkavy’s Yiddish-English-Hebrew online dictionary, available here. It’s a digitized edition of a 1910 dictionary.
The Yiddish Book Center’s recommended reading list
A user’s guide to Yiddish on the internet
has resources for Yiddish keyboards and typing, as well as general web navigation stuff.
Mendele is a curious relic of the early Yiddish internet that has hung on despite its limited userbase; they have a newsletter/listserv that you can sign up for to hear about Yiddish goings-on.
The Jewish Language Research website has a fairly extensive page for Yiddish (not to mention pages for many more relatively obscure Jewish languages, like Juhuri, Bukharian, Judeo-Malayalam, and Judeo-Provencal, to name just a few)
There’s almost certainly a lot out there that I didn’t put down here, so if any of my followers know of anything, please reblog this post (as text) with your recommendations.
