Dialect vs Language in the context of Yiddish

Does anyone have links to resources on arguments for and against the classification of Yiddish as a language, as opposed to a dialect? I'm writing an essay and all I have are books written by Jewish scholars, so it's not exactly the most balanced set of references. I agree with them on the classification of it as a language, but I think that their arguments would work better if compared to something.
