How do you say:

What have you been doing lately and where have you been lately?

Motwa wada anneh yomaneh kharayeh - What were you doing those last few days.

Ayya ehketwa shaptet wirra - Where have you been the last week?


I don't recall a word for "lately".

What does wirra mean?

It means "passed", but "shapta t'wirra" that sentence, it means "last week". Shapta t'pidla can also be used, and it has the same meaning.

I would like to leave

Bayen Azen (male)
Bayan Azan (female) 

Can we go now

(female)

Chumsan Azakh makha (Chumsan is used by Assyrians from Iran) replace the a with a e and its for a male
Mahsekh Azakh Makha

Yumsekh/Masekh Azekh Makha is literally translated to "Can we leave from here"

"Can we go now" is "Yumsekh or Masekh Azekh Hadiya?"

You guys can't go around comparing any of our modern dialects to Akkadian because I don't think anyone knows what it sounds like, Aramaic on the other hand you can, but all in all I think both of the dialects eastern and western are influenced by their regions and whatever historical background was around them.

I am curious to know,
1) Did we eastern and western Assyrians speak the same dilect during our empire days?
2) IF so, how and why did the dilects split into 2 types....Shlama/Shlomo?
Thanks

I think you're talking about the Mlahso one.

I'll try & translate your classes into Eastern Assyrian, for anyone who's interested in learning it.

??? = Minute (I say "daqeeqa", but that's not Assyrian)

By the way:

I like = G-rohamno
I want = K-oba'no

Both are the male versions.  Female is:

I like = G-ruhmono
I want = K-ub'ono

For "I don't like" or "I don't want" add "Lo" in front of the phrase.

waleeta habibto, the "G" describes the future form.

It must be so:

I like = k-roHamno (male)   ܟܪܚܡܢܐ/ ܟܪܚܡ ܐ̱ܢܐ
I want = k-oba'no (male); the: ' stands for the letter 'eh ܟܒܥܢܐ/ ܟܒܥ ܐ̱ܢܐ

I like = k-roHmono (female) ܟܪܚܡܐ ܐ̱ܢܐ
I want = k-ob'ono (female) ܟܒܥܐ ܐ̱ܢܐ

FYI....

The new Zinda Magazine is out; in the editors article about "our langauge is dying", he mentioned the Assyrian Preservation Society sending our daily "Assyrian Word of the Day" text messages.

If you would like to receive the text message please email the following to assyrianism@gmail.com:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Cell/Mobile number (upper 48 U.S. only), check your text message rates with your service provider.

Sorry Canada and all the other Assyrians in the world  :imsorry:

If you do not live in the U.S. (upper 48 states), you can send us your email and we will email you the word.


Yours in Assyrianism,
Atouraya Younadam
President
Assyrian Preservation Society
Love-Honesty-Respect...the only path to unity!
Awake, son of Assyria,
Awake and see the world how enlightened.
The chance is fleeing from us
And time is running out
Awake son of Assyria, Awake!
In vengeance you will take refuge.
Rise up and band together to strengthen.
And if one does not awake we have lost our chance
Without a purpose, misfortune will befall our land.
