Judeo-Yemeni Arabic (also known as Judeo-Yemeni, Yemenite Judeo-Arabic) is a variety of Arabic spoken by Jews living or formerly living in Yemen. 50,000 speakers now live in Israel, 1,000 remain in Yemen.[1] The language is quite different from mainstream Yemeni Arabic.[1] The language may be split into the subdialects of San`a, `Aden, Be:da, and Habban.[2]
