Spanish: Judaeo...
"Judaeo-Spanish, or Ladino, is spoken by descendants of the
Jewish population expelled from Spain under Torquemada in
1492.   The more than 100,000 Ladino-speaking Sephardic Jews
are mostly settled in urban areas in the eastern Mediterranean
area, and at least 20,000 Ladino immigrants now live in Israel.
‘The Yiddish of the Romance languages’, Ladino incorporates
modern loan words and Hebraisms into a basically archaic
Spanish syntax and vocabulary, which is essentially 15th-
century Spanish.   Like Yiddish, Judaeo-Spanish possesses a great
literary heritage.   It is written in Hebrew character, except by
those who have adopted more modern Spanish usage, owing to
cultural assimilation and the increased availability of contemporary
Spanish printed matter."
