 Abstract:
 
 This book argues that the usage of language in Jewish societies can be
 understood as following from certain specific principles, particularly
 regarding the relationship between language and identity. Phenomena discussed 
 include the revival of Hebrew, Hebrew in the Diaspora, the survival and
 'sanctification' of Yiddish, the idea of 'Jewish languages', and the role
 of sociolinguistic phenomena in the Holocaust and the Arab-Israeli conflict.
