- proper n. the Judaeo-Spanish language
A NOTE ABOUT LADINO Judeo-Spanish, sometimes called Judezmo (or Djudezmo), is the spoken language of the Sephardic Jews who lived in Spain since the tenth century and were expelled by official decree in 1492.
However, similar expressions in French, Spanish, and Judezmo, all mentioning numbers, give pause (they are listed in Jewish Language Review 7, 1987, p. 205).
