Julia studies the Istanbul-based of Judeo-Spanish, a language built with elements of Spanish, Hebrew, French, and Turkish...to name a few. In particular, she researches to what degree these contact languages have entered Judeo-Spanish’s core grammar and vocabulary, a question rife with historical and cultural underpinnings. Some have called Judeo-Spanish a dying language, but perhaps this is an overstatement.
