Jewish Neo-Aramaic

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionarypeer-review


The Jewish Neo-Aramaic dialects, originally spoken in Kurdistan and Iranian Azerbaijan and now mostly in Israel, are all on the verge of extinction. Three major dialect groups of Jewish Neo-Aramaic, and a further threefold subdivision of one of these groups, can readily be discerned on the basis of the distinct innovations that have shaped the linguistic profile of each of these dialectal divisions.
