A vivid commentary on Jewish survival and Jewish speech communities that will be enjoyed by the general reader, and is essential reading for students and researchers interested in the study of Middle Eastern languages, Jewish studies, and sociolinguistics.
In this book different aspects of language and aging are discussed. While
language spoken by and language spoken with elderly people have been
treated as different areas of research, it is argued here that from a
dynamical system perspective the two are closely interrelated. In addition
to overviews of research on language and aging, a number of projects on
this topic in multilingual settings are presented.
