Judaeo-Portuguese is the extinct Jewish language of the Jews of Portugal.

Description[edit]

The Judaeo-Portuguese language was the vernacular of Jews in Portugal before the sixteenth century and also in many places of the Portuguese Jewish diaspora. Texts were written in Hebrew letters (aljamiado português) or in Latin script.

As Portuguese Jews intermarried with other expelled Sephardim, it influenced the Judaeo-Spanish or Ladino language. Due to close similarity to standard Portuguese, Judaeo-Portuguese died out in Portugal, surviving in the every-day usage in the diaspora until the early 19th century. It also influenced the Papiamento and Saramaccan languages.
