Yiddish (ייִדיש / יידיש / אידיש, yidish/idish) is spoken as a daily language in some parts of America, mostly in and around New York City, and in some parts of Europe, particularly Eastern Europe, and South America, as well as in Israel. It developed out of Middle High German with many loanwords of Hebrew, Slavic, French, or other origin, making it not fully intelligible to native German speakers. As Yiddish is roughly 75% Germanic in origin, German speakers can understand a large part of it.
Yiddish is written with the same alphabet as Hebrew, with a few additional letters, and is written from right to left. However, unlike Hebrew, which uses an abjad (consonant-only alphabet), Yiddish generally uses the Hebrew alphabet as a full alphabet, vowels and all.
