I forgot to mention another potential conJudean language:  the
Judeo-Sinitic language of the Kaifeng Jews!  Sure, the ones we know about
_now_ spoke an apparently unexceptional local language and wrote only in
Chinese, and disappeared as a community by the early Qing dynasty, say
1700, IIRC -- but what about the ones we haven't discovered yet?  Say, the
peculiar Hebraeo-Hakka language of inland Fujian province?  Eh?  What
about them?
