This study explores language ideologies among Judeo-Spanish-speaking Sephardim in Seattle (n = 22) and South Florida (n = 20). South Florida Sephardim report more metalinguistic awareness and greater proficiency in Modern Spanish than those in Seattle. Seattle Sephardim report more communal integration and favor English code-switching more favorably than those in South Florida.
