Fair enough, did you at least use my Syriac diagram chart to teach the alphabet in a more concise manner?
I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you didn't finish reading what I wrote. So I'll recapitulate and expand upon the rationale behind it. This is the way I see it: if my knowledge here is greater than yours, you ought to learn from my video; if my knowledge is less than yours, you should have volunteered to work with me and/or delivered constructive criticism (as was my evident primary intention for this thread) as apposed to shrugging me off. If you think that both you and I have too little knowledge, then you clearly think this material is not needed, presumably due to a misconception that there is abundant material out there in this format (well, there isn't).
The title of the video says "exclusive of alphabet" which is consistent with it's omission of the Alepbeet. Yes, you'd be right to say people need to learn the Alepbeet but, I felt like skipping that part for my first video at least -considering there are way too many Alepbeet videos out there. And yes, your Syriac chart is nice.
The original post was a plea for Assyrians to contribute to this project. The video was a remedy to the disparity between our knowledge as a collective community and the accessibility of that information. Currently, this absence of information is appalling and very embarrassing and quite frankly, you strike me as a bizarre Assyrian for implicitly disqualifying me from trying to reconcile that disparity without you then offering a viable solution or a reason for me to drop the matter. Was the video crap or does this kind of stuff already exist on YouTube? In any case, I don't see the reasoning behind me not making these videos if my goal is to form a team (of an unpredictable but highly likely, far better capability than myself alone) to produce more material in the future.
I'd hate to get off on the wrong foot. Especially here of all places. Thanks for your support.
