In a JewishGen message dated 6/12/2006, Michael HerzlichTo illustrate to doubters, if any remail: your own name is a perfect example
of the phonetic phenomenon you describe. "Dwera" is what Yiddish does to
"Dvora"; exactly what is done to "Yoel" in order to produce "Yale". Notice
another example in my list of surnames below in the first "O":
Noachowicz>Neachowicz. It is not peculiar to the neighborhood of Bialystok,
but is characteristic of Yiddish in a much larger area.
The friendly "B'shalom", by the way, although it fits well into the habits
of English speakers, is a greeting entirely unknown in places where Hebrew
is actually spoken.
