Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) was the majority language in Salonika by this time and was spoken by other Jewish communities across the Ottoman lands.
Also, I'd agree with Kiza that Rusyn (and Ukrainian) are close enough to 'Ruthenian' for me - languages evolve, and Transylvanian Saxon and modern Turkish for instance are some way away from German and Ottoman Turkish respectively, but it's your quiz!
Like bro look me in the eye and tell me there are people who speak Zaza. Tell me there's a real thing called Udi.
