Dear Hardy,
a language that has such a rich literature as Yiddish is a language, and it
is at least 1000 years old. I really don't understand why does someone need
to doubt it.

As for Schmetterling: The Czernowitzian Yiddish was very "daytshmerized".
And the Czernowitzian German was, on the opposit, very "faryidisht". The
German language in Berlin is quite different :) Languages are not dead
substances. They live and develop. French was also bad Latin once upon a

By the way, "bobele" (for butterfly) has Slavic origin.
