Language in Jewish Society: Towards a New Understanding

Main Article Content

Nitza Krohn


In his book, Language in Jewish Society: Towards a New Understanding, Myhill ambitiously analyzes the relationship between language, identity, and society over a period of 3,000 years of Jewish history. Addressing a general readership, Myhill rejects an insider’s ideological approach, which focuses on the uniqueness of Jewish attitudes to language, in favor of a typological perspective, which explores the commonalities and differences between Jewish and non-Jewish sociolinguistic attitudes.
