:: Session Notes ::
1 - A series of interviews and speech samples from Larache, a harbor city in Northwestern Morocco. First, an interesting interview with a well-traveled Jewish man (speaking the nearly-extinct Judeo-Moroccan Arabic dialect), followed by a few snippets of conversation from the souq and an interview with the guardian of the Phoenician ruins of Lixus.
:: Recording Notes ::
0 - The interview subject is an elderly man from a Turkish Jewish family living in Morocco; he doesn't speak haketía, the Moroccan form of Judeo-Spanish, but he also doesn't speak the expected Turkish Judeo-Spanish - his Spanish is more like the somewhat mangled variety one often hears from Arabic speakers in the area. "75?75 years, that's the age I am. I'm Jewish, from up there in Istanbul?I'm 75 years old?I see the stars, the moon, the sun, and I work all over the globe, I know the globe so I can circle it. This is Larache. I am traveling the world a little bit?Spain, Turkey, Pakistan, Russia, Stalingrad."
