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.
The papers in this volume were selected from those presented at the 3rd Hispanic Linguistics Symposium held at Georgetown University in October 1999. We are delighted to be publishing selected proceedings from this annual conference. 10 of the papers in this book discuss phonology, phonetics, and historical linguistics. The other 15 papers focus on syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. The volume offers an excellent snapshot of the research currently being done in Hispanic linguistics.
