JEWISH LANGUAGE CONTACT, International Journal of the Sociology of Language

For a special invited refereed IJSL issue (for which IJSL General Editor
Joshua A. Fishman will submit an article too), you are hereby invited to
propose original, groundbreaking, scholarly and accessible papers on any
aspect of contact involving Jewish languages. For example, you can explore
the impact of non-Jewish languages on Jewish languages (e.g. Slavonic
tongues on Yiddish; Arabic on Israeli / Modern Hebrew), Jewish influence on
non-Jewish languages (e.g. Yiddish on English; Israeli / Modern Hebrew on
Palestinian Arabic), the dynamics between Jewish languages (e.g.
Ladino/Judezmo/Judeo-Spanish versus Israeli / Modern Hebrew), as well as
between more than two languages at least one of which you consider Jewish
(e.g. the combined phonological or lexical impact of Yiddish and Arabic on
Israeli / Modern Hebrew).

Furthermore, you can examine how Jewish language contact in particular has
contributed - or may contribute - to the field of contact linguistics in
general. Articles seeking to forge a new path related to the question of
what a 'Jewish language' actually is, or challenge specific glottonyms, are
most welcome too. After all, 2,500 years ago, Confucius was already
suggesting that 'the first thing one has to do is to rectify names'.

This refereed issue is not restricted to any particular linguistic
framework or discipline and is inter alia aimed at functioning as an
epistemological bridge between parallel discourses pertaining to the study
of Jewish linguistics. Explorable languages include Yiddish,
Ladino/Judezmo/Judeo-Spanish; Biblical, Mishnaic, Medieval and Maskilic
Hebrews, Israeli / Modern Hebrew, Jewish Aramaic, Jewish English,
Judeo-Arabic, Judeo-Italian, Judeo-French, Judeo-Persian, Juhuru,
Judeo-Portuguese, Judeo-Greek, Jewish Malayalam, Jewish Russian,
Judeo-Provençal and Esperanto.

Style and reference format should follow Zuckermann (2009), accessible at:
