    Unpacking het and ayin - authenticity, ethnicity and phonological variation in the Tel Aviv area

    The talk will be given by Roey Gafter of Stanford University. Among Israelis, Jewish ethnicity is usually understood as a dichotomy between Ashkenazi Jews (Jews of European descent) and Mizrahi Jews (Jews of Middle Eastern descent). While this distinction is extremely socially salient in Israel, not much is known about how these categories related to linguistic variation. This talk will demonstrate that framing ethnicity as an Ashkenazi-Mizrahi binary hides many meaningful distinctions, both linguistically and socially.
