The Jewish Iraqi Website

This website is designed to be a forum the Jewish Iraqi community worldwide.It is also for people who want to find out more about the Jewish Iraqi language. It is still being built and will require a lot of feedback from the Jewish Iraqi community. The published audio recordings are in Jewish Iraqi dialect and have been collected over the last 4 years.
My deepest thanks to all the people who have made this project achievable, to ELDP for funding the field work and to ELAR for training and support. My special thanks go to Edwin Shuker, Peter Austin and David Nathan for their continuous support and encouragement. Finally, my thanks to the scores of Iraqi jews who welcomed me in their homes to make these recordings.
