Summary/Abstract: The article is devoted to discussing the phonetic phenomena characteristic of the Jews’ Polish speech, as observed in the interwar cabaret Jewish skits (szmonces) in Poland. Those phenomena result from the influence(s) of Yiddish, the Eastern borderlands’ Polish, East Slavonic languages as well as the very creativity of the authors who imitated the authentic speech of the Warsaw Jews. The linguistic devices introduced therein served identifying and comic functions in the skits.
