To whom it may interest:

While Judeo-Aramaic in this Quiz refers to several Neo-Aramaic dialects, that were/are traditionally spoken by the Jews of Kurdistan, ancient Aramaic dialects were also common among Jews around 0 AD (It probably was the language of Jesus). Under the Neo-Assyrian Empire (ca. 900-600 BC) it became a lingua franca in the Fertile Crescent and was (later) adopted by many groups. Ancient Aramaic was sometimes even used for religious texts. Today it is mostly used (as common or liturgical language) by Christians, Jews and Mandaic People in the Fertile Crescent, while the Muslims of the region mostly speak Arabic or iranian and turkic languages.

If you are interested in additional data, sources, clarification or information to other mentioned languages, leave a comment.

Holy cow (ʘ言ʘ╬)

Got nothing else other than Hebrew. It baffles me to see there are so many other Jewish languages outside of Hebrew. Proves how much little I actually know about languages

I doubt many people will even know half of the languages on this Quiz, especially as many are smaller dialects and sociolects and mutually understandable with the language(s) spoken by neighbouring non-Jews.

I really like that quiz - I got everything right in 5:20. Thx for the effort.

Maybe you could also display some Karaim in Lithuania?
