    Dear foreros,

    I'd like to know what differences may I find between the Sephardite spoken in ex-Yugoslavia and that spoken in, let's say, Istambul or Tessaloniki. I've spoken to Sephardites in Sarajevo and in Greece too, but I've not been able to see if what I didn't undersatood was Hebrew, Serbian or Greek loanwords and/or structures.

    Do you mean judeo-espanol? I've never heard it called Sephardite before.

    You can call this language "judeo-español", "judeoespañol", "dzudezmo", "ladino", "espanyol", "lo ke avlamos"....
