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.
This volume brings together a selection of papers from the 1992
Philological Society Anniversary Symposium which explore the connections
between linguistic thought in Britain and Europe in the 19th and 20th
centuries and current research. The chapters cover semantics, syntax,
morphology and phonology. A particular focus is the reception of European
and American ideas within linguistics in Britain.
