Yiddish (Yid. ייִדיש, yidish, = n. & adj. "Jewish")

Yiddish has been variously considered a German dialect and an independent language.

A widely-cited statement of the situation in the 1930s was published by Max Weinreich, quoting a remark by an auditor of one of his lectures:

אַ שפּראַך איז אַ דיאַלעקט מיט אַן אַרמיי און פֿלאָט

(a shprakh iz a dialekt mit an armey un flot).

"A language is a dialect with an army and navy"
