Jews, Yiddish, past participles and the Rzeczpospolita

15 Dec

Stumbled upon this map (present day borders) the other day, of the distribution of past passive participle endings in Yiddish…

…that confirms a point I made in a post this past September ( Jews, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Romania and how “the borders kept changing” ) that is, that Jews never migrated to Russia or Ukraine, but only to the Polish-Lithuanian Rzeczpospolita and then ended up in other states when Poland was partitioned. The two maps overlap perfectly.
