RABBINIC HEBREW

Rabbinic Hebrew is that form of Hebrew in which the Jewish scholars and theologians of the middle ages composed their works. Grammatically it differs but little from the ancient Hebrew, but in many cases new meanings are attached to Hebrew words already in use, in other cases new derivatives are formed from old Hebrew roots, and many words are borrowed from the Arabic.

ROMANCE LANGUAGES

Romance Languages are those languages of Southern Europe which owe their origin to the language of Rome - the Latin - and to the spread of Roman dominion and civilization. They include the Italian, French, Provencal, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, and Romansch. Their basis was not, however, the classic Latin of literature, but the popular Roman language - the Lingua Romana rustica spoken by the Roman soldiers, colonists, and others, and variously modified by uneducated speakers of the different peoples among whom it became the general means of communication. In all of these tongues Latin is the chief ingredient, and a knowledge of Latin helps very greatly in acquiring a knowledge of them.
