Moshe Piamenta, M.A., Ph.D. (1958) in Arabic, University of Jerusalem is Emeritus Professor of Arabic Language and Literature. He is the author of Studies in Palestinian Arabic Syntax and Islam in Everyday Arabic Speech.
"Piamenta's book can be considered as milestone in the field of Judaeo-Arabic dialects, especially of the Arabic dialects spoken by the Jews in the Galilee and in the holy city of Jerusalem for hundreds of years." - Aharon Geva-Kleinberger, in: Journal of Arabic Linguistics, 2005
This volume deals with Judaeo-Jerusalem Arabic affected by Jewish socio-religious life, its interrelatedness with non-Jewish Jerusalem Arabic, and its erosion by youths through replacement by Hebrew.
The socio-religious life of the Jewish community is first introduced, followed by descriptions of socio-linguistic processes of both dialect varieties, of integrating and discharging foreign borrowings, of lexico-semantic concord and contrast between both dialect varieties, of varieties relating to relative status of interlocutors, and of deteriorating Judaeo-Jerusalem Arabic replaced by modern Hebrew.
A dictionary-like Arabic and Hebrew index ends the book.
The diachronic and synchronic analyses and description of intricate and interrelated lexico-semantic communal dialectal varieties of Arabic and Hebrew in present-day Jerusalem is a most challenging linguistic achievement hopefully won here.
