The Ladino language is a mix of pre expulsion Spanish, French, Arabic... if you want an example, today people in Spain write "hermosa" and "Hernan Cortes", but in Old Spanish & in Ladino, it is "fermoza" (actually Fermoza was the name of my great great grand aunt) and "Fernan Cortes" (he wrote his name that way).
