Abstract:

Contagious Couplings, by Mark R. V. Southern, examines relationships
between native languages and Yiddish. It highlights the historical and
sociolinguistic development of Turkic, Iranian, South Asian, Slavic, Greek,
Balkan, Judezmo, Armenian, Georgian, and Basque languages. One of the main
focuses is on the adopted post-medieval and pre-modern Yiddish-speaking
Ashkenazi homelands of Eastern Europe. The book emphasizes the role of
ludic or playful modifications of a language's structures at the colloquial
level as sources of linguistic change. And, it goes further to say that
expressive language, linguistic iconicity, and etymological analysis can
all complement and enrich each other.
