Description: This unique book is the first Ladino dictionary for English speakers! Ladino, also known as Judeo-Spanish or Judezmo, was the language spoken by Sephardic Jews who settled in the Ottoman Empire after their expulsion from Spain in the 15th century. Definitions for the words include the origin, the cultural context of expressions and their usage, making the book an invaluable reference tool for anyone interested in Romance and Oriental languages and/or Jewish culture.
