Dr. Aharon GEVA KLEINBERGER has been concentrating in the recent years on researching Judaeo-Arabic dialects: Jewish dialects in Galilee (Haifa, Safed, Peqi'in and Tiberias) and Jewish dialects in the Far East: India, Burma and Singapore. He has also conducted fieldwork on the Arabic dialects of the Jews of Sudan. The Arabic dialects of Jews are in severe danger nowadays of becoming extinct. Therefore, he tries to save Judeo-Arabic dialects, that are still unknown. At present, Dr. Aharon GEVA KLEINBERGER is beginning to research the Arabic dialects of the Jews of China in the east. Between 1995-2004 Dr. GEVA KLEINBERGER worked with the late Prof. Rafi Talmon in two large projects on Palestinian dialects in Northern Israel, financed first by the GIF (German-Israeli Foundation) and then by the ISF (Israel Science Foundation). In the last phases of the project, after his death, Dr. GEVA KLEINBERGER was responsible for the project and I began to publish articles from this research corpus. Prof. Talmon's bequeathed numerous books to the University of Haifa and additionally I have collected articles and other bibliography under one roof in our department at the University of Haifa the largest corpus in the world concerning Palestinian dialects, and also the most comprehensive library in the world in this field which can serve researchers and students. Dr. GEVA KLEINBERGER's work is not merely of linguistic interest, since the texts that he collects can serve historians and anthropologists.
