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.
Language and Intercultural Communication and Education
The book presents a new theory of the relationship between language and
culture in a transnational and global perspective. The fundamental view is
that languages spread across cultures, and cultures spread across
languages, or in other words, that linguistic and cultural practices flow
through social networks in the world along partially different paths and
across national structures and communities.
