Abstract

The article at hand aims to demonstrate the development of international loanword adaptation in Early Modern Hebrew based on Hebrew press published in Russia during the period from the 1860s to the 1910s. In the period, various languages from both Eastern and Western Europe were enriched by internationalisms. For Hebrew, the challenge was even more complex, since in that same period Hebrew was undergoing language modernization that is referred to by various terms in scholarly use revival, revitalization, revernacularization, relexification and others. I intend to show that most trends in the area of loanword adaptation had been formed by the 1910s in European Hebrew. The image of language change that is reflected by the sources I use contradicts both traditional and revisionist general theories on Israeli Hebrew emergence.
