  Hebrew language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
While the term "Hebrew" as a nationality is customarily used to refer to the ancient Israelites, the classical Hebrew language was extremely similar to the Canaanite languages spoken by their neighbors, such as Phoenician; indeed, Moabite and Hebrew are often considered to be two dialects of the same language.
This language family is generally thought by linguists to have originated somewhere in northeastern Africa, and began to diverge around the 8th millennium BCE, although there is much debate about the exact date and place.
By the end of the 3rd millennium BCE the ancestral languages of Aramaic, Ugaritic, and other various Canaanite languages were spoken in the Levant alongside the influential dialects of Ebla and Akkad.

While the title of Wexler's monograph announces that Yiddish is "the !5th Slavic language", this claim is somewhat toned down in the text were we read (on p.15) that "the antecedent of Yiddish was a Judaized form of (Upper) Sorbian".
Wexler's one-sided concern with the lexicon leads him also to treat western and eastern Yiddish as two different languages, whereas it is precisely the common grammatical structure and the similarities of their phonetic developments (apart from their common cultural heritage) which compel us to view them as variants of one and the same language.
While Hebrew has been for centuries the secondary, cultural and religious language of the East European Jews, German has from the very beginning threatened the survival of the two western Slavic languages, and with it the national identity and very survival of their speakers.
