  •  for a fun mix, ladino & yiddish! (5+ / 0-)

    both those languages date back a thousand years or more, but for speaking and reading purposes Ladino comes across as largely spanish or/and portuguese of somewhat antiquated type mixed with classical hebrew, and yiddish as an intensely blended russo-pol-germanic-etc-with-classical&colloquial hebrew.  in a lot of the music, the classic and antique elements are very strong.

    humans are so creatively syncretismic!
