During the middle ages, the Jews who lived in the Iberian Peninsula spoke and wrote in the Romance languages of the host culture. They developed a unified dialect that was distinct from Castilian Spanish. After the expulsion of the Jews in 1492, this language became part of the 'Iberian Heritage' of the Sephardim throughout the world. Today, although the language is in danger of extinction, it is experiencing a revival.
