Judæo-Aragonese (Aragonese: Chodigo-Aragonés) was a Judæo-Romance language (a Jewish language derived from Aragonese), used by Spanish Jews in north-central Spain from the mid-8th century until the time of the Jewish expulsion from Spain, when it either merged with the various Judæo-Spanish dialects, or fell out of use in favor of the far more influential Judæo-Spanish. While there are some scholars that believe that the language may have had some speakers until around the time of World War Two, most scholars believe that it went fully extinct in the Middle Ages. Along with Judæo-Catalan, Judæo-Aragonese shares a marked component of Judæo-Greek. It has been suggested that the reason for Judæo-Catalan's influence on Judæo-Aragonese's may be due to an influx of Judæo-Catalan speakers in the 14th century, especially around the times of the nationwide pogroms in 1391.
