Workshop on Yiddish Nouns

Are you still confused about when to use dos, di, der? And on top of it, what is it with dem? Why the word girl in Yiddish is of neuter grammatical gender? What is the category of gender, what is the function of accusative and dative cases, and why does it look like there are a million ways to make a plural form of a noun?

Yes, while learning Yiddish words you can have a lot of similar questions. It is easy to get frustrated when you think that there is no other way than to just memorize each word with an article and plural form.

Confusion with genders and declension of articles leads to constant mistakes in speech and writing.

In this two-part workshop, we will cover all the essential topics regarding Yiddish nouns. You will get a clear picture of how they behave and why. We will dig into theory and see how it helps us in practice.

When:  Sundays, November 13 and 20, 10.30 a.m.-12.00 p.m. PT (12:30- 2:00 p.m. CT, 1:30-3:00 p.m. ET)
