Chapter Summary

This section of the book The Jewish Neo-Aramaic Dialect of Challa contains all Aramaic lexemes found in the recordings of Shabbo 'Amrani, a few additional words contributed by Ahiya Hashiloni as well as some words culled from Ahiya's father, Rabbi Jacob Hashiloni, when reciting the Passover haggada. Words found only in the oral recitation of the haggada often reflect an older literary register and are marked in the glossary as haggada. The reconstructed singular of words attested only in the plural are marked by an asterisk. The gender of nouns is marked only when it is explicit in the text in which it occurs. Square brackets contain earlier Aramaic evidence of the lexemes and occasional etymological information. In order to highlight the relationship of the lexicon of JChalla to that of other lishana deni dialects, constant reference is made to the dictionary of Sabar.

Keywords:Aramaic lexemes; Challa; haggada; Jewish Neo-Aramaic dialect; lishana deni dialects
