Ladino, the language of the Sephardic Jews, is based on Old Spanish and is written in the Hebrew script. It is generally pronounced like modern day Spanish. Exceptions are below:

  • The letter j in “mujer” is like the French j in “bon jour.”
  • The letter z in “hermoza,” “vez,” and “otra vez” is pronounced as an English z.
  • The letter s in “corason” is pronounced as an English z.

Yo m'enamori d'un aire,
D'un aire d'una mujer,
I fell in love with
the charms of a woman,
D'una mujer muy hermoza
Of a very beautiful woman,
Linda de mi corason.

The beauty of my heart.

Yo m'enamori de noche,
I fell in love at night.
El lunar ya m'engano.
The moonlight was my undoing.
Si esto era de dia,
If it had been in daylight
Yo no atava amor.

Love would not have bound me.

Si otra vez m'enamoro
If I fall in love again
D'un aire d'una mujer,
With the charms of a woman,
D'una mujer muy hermoza
Of a very beautiful woman,
Linda de mi corason,
The beauty of my heart,
Sea de dia con sol,
It will be by daylight with sunshine,
Si otra vez m'enamoro.
If I fall in love again.
