- Jewish Languages (1)
- A kind friend obtained for me a copy of Jewish Languages - Theme and Variations (ISBN: 0-91593-801-4) in a charity shop. It was edited by Herbert Paper and it comprised the proceedings of a conference on Jewish languages held at The University of Michigan and New York University in March-April 1975.
The topics were:
The historical periods of the Hebrew language, by Joshua Blau
Aramaic and its dialects, by Jonas Greenfield
Yiddish, by Marvin Herzog
Judeo-Romance Languages by George Jochnowitz
Ladino language and literature, by Denah Lida
Judeo-Persian, by Herbert Paper
Mediaeval Judeo-Arabic, by Joshua Blau
The languages of Palestine, by Jonas Greenfield
- Jewish Languages (2)
- Jewish Language Research Website: http://www.jewish-languages.org/
Around the world, wherever Jews have lived, they have spoken somewhat differently from the non-Jews around them. Their languages have differed by as little as a few Hebrew words or as much as a highly variant grammar. There has been a good deal of research on a number of Jewish languages, including Yiddish, Judeo-Spanish, Judeo-Arabic, Judeo-Italian, Jewish English, and Jewish Neo-Aramaic.
This website displays some of this research and the scholars who create it.

- An article under the heading "Ladino - A Lost Language?" written by
Dr Jay Levinson and published in the Jewish Tribune newspaper (London, U.K.,
16 October 1998, page 9) refers to the Institute of Ladino, Ma'ale Adumim,
Israel. The Director is Avner Peretz.
Other topics mentioned by Dr Levinson include ...
- After the expulsion from Spain in 1492 CE, the name Ladino, a corruption of the word "Latin," was used in the Balkans and Turkey, to distinguish it from Turkish. In Tangier and Tetuan in Spanish Morocco, it was called Haquitiya.
- Books include "Me'am Lo'ez" and "Sefer Shemos" (part 1), by Rabbi Yaakov Culi, Constantinople, 1730CE. Sefer Shemos has been translated into Judeo-Arabic. The Library contains over 300 volumes.
- Ha-Shofar, a Zionist newspaper written in Ladino and published in Bulgaria at the beginning of the twentieth century CE.
- There are between 50,000 and 80,000 people in Israel who have some knowledge of Ladino. The number of Ladino speakers is far fewer.
