The Assyrian Alphabets
« on: January 21, 2010, 12:44:05 AM »
Given how popular this section is, and how many people come here to learn the language, I think it is only natural that we have a sticky for the Assyrian alphabets.

Let us work together on this, to write the Assyrian alphabet please, and their English pronunciation.

To start, there are 22 letters in the Assyrian (Syriac) language, and we type from right to left.

And it comes with links, too. :)

Depending on your settings, you may or may not see the desired font/alphabet. Having the alphabets as an image is the best alternative.

Quote from: OnPoint

You are truly delusional, you know that. The article says that the LARGEST RELIGION in the world is ISLAM. period. I know that Catholicism is a sect of Christianity, but the article is wise enough to say that ISLAM has surpassed even the largest sect of Christianity which is Catholicism. That clearly shows that there are more Muslims than any other religion.

Hi Ashoor.
I am new here to the site, but glad to have found what I've been searching for.
I want to learn Aramaic very, very much, and find out more.

Reading the replies has shown that I am not alone.

Thanks for this site.

This should be it:

Karina - ܟܪܝܢܐ
David - ܕܘܝܕ
Daniel - ܕܢܐܝܠ
