Research for a paper on American Yiddish

edit: Data collection is now over and the paper is being written. Thanks to all who answered for your help! Once the flurry of writing is over I can talk results to anyone interested.


Hey, American English speakers!
I'm doing research for a paper on the incorporation of a few Yiddish words into the American lexicon. I'm hoping to prove that the words have different shades of meaning depending on how many Jewish people the speaker knows (using Milroy-style network density measurements). I'd love your help! If you'd rather email your answers, direct them to yiddishstudy AT gmail DOT com.

survey is hereCollapse )

That's it. Thanks so much for helping out!
