Mordkhe Veynger

Mordkhe Veynger (1890–1929) was a Soviet-Jewish linguist.[1]


Born in Poltava, Ukraine, he moved to Warsaw. He studied Germanic philology at the University of Warsaw.[1]

After World War I he established at Minsk where he became lecturer at the Belarusian State University.[1]

He began the first Yiddish dialect atlas in the 1920s. The atlas is limited to phonology and to Yiddish spoken within the territory of the Soviet Union in 1931.[2]
