Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

ich darf Sie auf die aktuelle Neuerscheinung in der von Andrzej Kątny 
und Stefan Michael Newerkla herausgegebenen Reihe "Sprach- und 
Kulturkontakte in Europas Mitte" aufmerksam machen:

*Andrzej Kątny / Izabela Olszewska / Aleksandra Twardowska (eds.): 
Ashkenazim und Sephardim: Language Miscellanea (= **Sprach- und 
Kulturkontakte in Europas Mitte**. Studien zur Slawistik und Germanistik 
7). Peter Lang, Berlin et al. 2019. ISBN 978-3-631-74987-6 (Print), 
978-3-631-77514-1 (E-PDF), 978-3-631-77515-8 (EPUB), 978-3-631-77516-5 

*Zum Buch **– About the book:*
The collection of articles chosen by the editors presents a broad 
variety of issues connected with Jewish languages (Judeo-Spanish, 
Yiddish) and co-territorial languages used by Ashkenazi and Sephardic 
Jews in different places and periods. Thus, the book contains both 
strictly linguistic and sociolinguistic descriptions (including the 
aspects of evaluating language, language in contact or linguistic 
identity), the presentation of languages in literary works (and their 
translations) from different periods, as well as lexicographical and 
cultural observations. This thematic variety shows opportunities for the 
research into the languages of both Jewish groups and inspires other 
scientific projects in this field.
