I have a phrase >from a gravestone that I need translated. I thought it-------->
These words are in Ladino (or Judeo-Spanish) that was mainly spoken by
Sephardic Jews living in the Ottoman Empire. The language is based on
medieval Spanish (time of the Expulsion in 1492) and has additions >from
Hebrew and local languages like Turkish, Greek and Bulgarian).
The words on the inscription mean: "My little one, my delicious one".
