General informationEdit

In 1946, a group of American Ashkenazi Orthodox and Messianic Jews founded a kibbutz near Bilbao, Spain.  They were reacting to their perception that the nation of Israel was being founded on Zionist, anti-Yiddish principles. Weddish was created as an auxiliary language to bridge the gap between Yiddish, Hebrew, English, and some Basque. The decision was made early on to engineer in the dual number as a fundamental yet symbolically-rich part of the language. The Hebrew/Aramaic alphabet is the exclusive script, both as an alphabet and as a "pointed" abjad.

PhonologyEdit

Weddish phonology is quite close to English, except the absence of 'w', the abundance of 'x' and the simplification of the vowel system. American r's are undesirable, and should be said in the German or Scottish manner.

AlphabetEdit

Weddish uses the Hebrew in the Yiddish fashion. The nasals (m and n) are מ and נ. The stops (b, p, d, t, g, k, ʔ) are ב and פ and ד and ט and ג and ק and א. The fricative (v, f, z, s, š, x, h) are װ and פֿ and ז and ס and ש and כ and ה. The fricative ž is a digraph: זש. Only one affricate is not a digraph c: צ. Two affricates (dz and č) are digraphs: דז and טש. dž is a trigraph: דזש. The approximants (l, j, r) are ל and י and ר.

Five letters have different forms when they appear at the end of word. These forms do not affect pronunciation. m, n, f, x, and c --- when they appear at the end of a word --- are ם and ן and ף and ך and ץ.

There are seven symbols which only appear in loan words. שֿ and תֿ are other s's. כּ is another k. It is written as ךּ at the end of a word. ח is another x. בֿ is another v. ת is another t.

Normally, Weddish is written as an alphabet, like European languages. The vowels (a,e,i,o,u) are אַ and ע and י and אָ and ו. The diphthongs (au,ai,ei,oi,ou) are אַו and ײַ and ײ and ױ and אָו.

There is, however, an alternative style for religious and important documents. In it, vowels are written exclusively as "points" around the consonants. For example, the sounds ba,be,bi,bo,bu,bau,bai,bei,boi,bou are written as בַ and בֶ and בִ and בָ and בֻ and בֲ and בֱ and בֵ and בֹ and בֳ. Syllabic consonants receive the schwa, e.g. לְ.

PhonotacticsEdit

Weddish is only slightly less free than Yiddish in its phonotactics. Almost anything is possible!
