Keywords:  Yiddish language, Western Ukrainian Yiddish, Yoysef Burg, “Afn Tshermush”, dialectal lexemes, Yiddish lexicography
Basing on two original and two translated editions of Yoysef Burg’s short story collection “Afn Tshermush” (“On the Cheremosh River”), the paper attempts a complex description of either the author’s peculiar or common dialectal Western Ukrainian Yiddish lexemes as employed in the two original editions and yet unregistered in available dictionaries of the Yiddish language. Described are numerous Ukrainian borrowings in the author’s idiom which fall into imported lexemes, loanshifts, induced creations etc, many of them suggestive of their common dialectal rather than individual-contextual character. The researcher arrives at the conclusion that the lexemes in question present evidence as to a degree of difference between the ways of recent historical development of Central and Eastern Ukrainian Yiddish, on the one hand, and Western Ukrainian Yiddish, on the other hand. The listed words and expressions may be used by lexicographers for the purpose of expanding the dialectal component of prospective Yiddish dictionaries.
