History of the Hebrew language - Did you know?
As long ago as the 10th century B.C, Hebrew was flourishing as a spoken language. It belongs to the Canaanite group of languages; the name of which comes from the ancient Canaan region, which covers parts of present day Israel, Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan. Of all the Canaanite languages, only Hebrew has survived.
In spite of the fact that Hebrew is the last Canaanite language left, it has struggled throughout the course of time to survive. In the 6th century B.C., during the Babylonian Empire, Aramaic was forced on the Jewish population. Even after the end of the Babylonian era, Aramaic and Hebrew co-existed right up until the rise of the East Roman Empire in the first centuries A.D, after which the Jewish population dispersed and spread all over the globe, where they were assimilated into the various societies. The existence of Hebrew was preserved through written language until the mid-19th century, when Jewish activist Eliezer Ben Yehuda began reviving the Jewish spoken language.
Modern (Israeli) Hebrew, as developed by Eliezer Ben Yehuda, is based on spelling from Mishnaic Hebrew - the ancient language used in the Talmud, a collection of Jewish oral laws and discussions - and Sephardi Hebrew pronunciation - as used in the liturgy of the Jews from the Iberian Peninsula and Africa, which was influenced by Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic.
Hebrew has been an incredibly influential language; many English words, with a predominantly biblical meaning, can be traced back to Hebrew: amen, hallelujah, messiah, cherub.
