Jewish languages are actually various languages spoken in Jewish communities all over the world and made up of several different dialects. For many centuries Jews worldwide spoke the local language of the communities they migrated to, which led to distinctive dialect forms or branches functioning as independent languages. Many Jewish languages retained archaic vocabulary and linguistic structures of the parent language even as they began to develop into more modern forms of the old Hebrew and Rashi letters and scripts.
