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.[citation needed] While there are some scholars that believe that the language may have had some speakers until around the time of World War Two,[citation needed] most scholars believe that it went fully extinct in the Middle Ages.[citation needed] Along with Judæo-Catalan, Judæo-Aragonese shares a marked component of Judæo-Greek.[1] 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.[2]
