Subject: RE: Swallow Song
Joe, this is a wonderfully informative thread. I'm especially pleased to be educated about Judeo-Spanish vs. Ladino et al. I don't think the same variety exists for Yiddish, but I may be wrong. Interestingly, my grandparents didn't use the word Yiddish. They always said something like, "Harry, the children! Say it in Jewish!" (Just an English translation, of course.)

Joel refers to "the Harmon tribute CD." Is that Jan Harmon? I've been meaning to order that for a while, and I think I will go ahead and do it. If anybody is interested, you can get the Jan Harmon tribute CD through Timberhead Music, reachable on Gordon Bok's website. (Pardon the thread creep!)
