Below is a list of free online grammars and dictionaries for both the classical and modern dialect(s) in a wide variety of formats. If you have a link to one that is currently not listed below (or an alternate link to one already listed below, as links often suddenly stop working), please feel free to share and I will add it to the list. Should/when any links stop working, please let me know so I can remove them.

All entries are in [English] unless otherwise noted.

To add to Carlo's wonderful list of online dictionaries, here is:  http://www.dukhrana.com/lexicon/BarBahlul/ (Note:  you'll need to be able to read Aramaic and Arabic to make use of this dictionary)

Also,  http://www.dukhrana.com/lexicon/Jennings/  (Note:  as with the above dictionary, you'll need to have some familiarity with the language to use the dictionary.  You can't simply type an English word and expect to get an Aramaic translation to it. As is common with dictionaries of the Semitic langauges, you must know the root consonants of a word (usually three) to be able to make use of them.)

Here is another one to add to this list:

http://www.archive.org/details/TreasureOfTheSyriacLanguage02  (Volume Two)

This is Thomas Audo's Syriac to Syriac dictionary.  

Edit:  I had originally added Volume One without realizing that Carlo had already included it in the list.  Anyways, looks like Volume Two just recently became available as well.

Shlama!

I would be very grateful if anyone could send me a link for an English - Assyrian (Eastern) dictionary.  I've recently befriended an Assyrian gentleman online and I would really like to learn some appropriate words and phrases for conversation.

David Tappan Stoddard's Grammar of the modern Syriac language: as spoken in Oroomiah, Persia, and in Koordistan can be found here:
Link

Although it is not perfect, I think it is a good book for beginners trying to learn the modern grammar.  Of course it should be used in combination with other sources.

This online dictionary is also based off of the dictionary by Louis Costaz S.J.  It has English, French, and Arabic translations (like Costaz's original dictionary):
American Foundation for Syriac Studies

This is another online dictionary I came across.  It has English, Swedish, and Arabic translations:
Syriac Dictionary - Syrisk ordbok - قاموس سرياني

The online dictionary project by the Association Assyrophile de France and Dukhrana's online dictionaries are more polished and detailed than the two linked above.

Also the Association Assyrophile de France online dictionary, English/French one you have listed already, has Brazilian Portuguese and German translations also.  They have to be turned on from the "Configurate language and display" page.

Thanks for the links, dawidh. :)

I didn't really see any Brazilian Portuguese or German translations when I turned those options on. I think they're still working on those languages...

Yea, I believe it is still a work in progress.  Just like some of the entries have audio files and others don't.  I thought others might like to know they have the options, that was all.

[German] Kurzgefasste syrische Grammatik von Theodor Nöldeke

The English version of the above book is here.  It's a very useful book, though a bit old.

Recently I found this page called Learn Syriac and Aramaic, where you can find several books, mostly in English, some in German.  The actual files are here.

- Some of the most notable things on the page are:
*Leshono Suryoyo: First Studies in Syriac by John Healey (2005), with audio files, both in East pronunciation and in West pronunciation!  The file name is "07.leshonoSuryoyoFirstStudiesInSyriac"...; the audio files are called TR01... through TR37...
*W. M. Thackston: Introduction to Syriac: An Elementary Grammar With Readings from Syriac Literature (1999).  File names="01.introduction"... or "1.Introduction"... (the same thing)
*Daniel M. Gurtner: Introduction to Syriac: Key to Exercises and English-Syriac Vocabulary (2006) - Keys to Thackston above.  File name="2.Introduction"...

- Additionally:
*T. H. Robinson: Paradigms and Exercises in Syriac Grammar (4th ed. 1962)  File names are "02.paradigms"... or "3.Paradigms"... (the same files).
*[German] Arthur Ungnad: Syrische Grammatik mit Übungsbuch (1913) - file name "5.Syrische"...  But maybe this link is better for this one.

- They also have Nöldeke, Muraoka, Brockelmann, Jessie, and Costaz on the same page, but those books are already in the list above (though some of them might be better versions, like cleaner scans or newer reprints).  The other books on the page are not specifically Syriac-related.  I'll list them up anyway for reference:
*Frederick E. Greenspahn: An Introduction to Aramaic (Corrected Second Edition 2007) - file name "7.An Introduction to Aramaic"...
*W. B. Stevenson (2nd ed 1962): Palestinian Jewish Aramaic Grammar - "8.Palestinian"...
*Ebbe Egede Knudsen: A Targumic Aramaic Reader: Texts from Onkelos and Jonathan (1981) - "9.A Targumic"...
*Klaus Beyer: The Aramaic language its distribution and subdivisions (1986). Translated from German by John F. Healey - File name "10.The Aramaic"... or "11.theAramaic"... (the same files)

I'm attaching my handmade "Bookmarks" for the 2011 scan, DjVu version, of A compendious Syriac dictionary.  (This scan is much higher-quality than a 2014 scan, a 2009 scan, and other two scans of the same dictionary on archive.org.)
One can use these "Bookmarks" on WinDjView, an open-source free DjVu viewer for Windows, after importing them via File | Import Bookmarks (Files of Type=All Files).  Look at the attached images, and how they work should be self-explanatory.  Nothing fancy, but with them you can open the right page more quickly when looking up a word...

PS:  The direct link to the DjVu file (an e-book format, so to speak) is
https://ia700600.us.archive.org/9/items/compendioussyria00payn/compendioussyria00payn.djvu (39 MiB)
I'd recommend this scan because it's smaller and lighter (especially if you view it in the Foreground mode or in the Black&White mode) than PDF versions, and because English text is searchable (e.g. you can easily find every place where "Assyria" is used), making it possible to use the same dictionary as an English-Syriac dictionary too.

You're welcome!

And I found a higher-quality scan of Duval.  Though this one is not searchable,  text looks much better than the versions on archive.org.

I'm sure most of people here already know ishtartv very well.  They have many interesting documents, including:
Free Assyrian for beginners lessons
Assyrian Kurdish Dictionary
Modern Assyrian Phonology
Chaldo-Syrio-Assyrian Language
and more.

One sad news, by the way...  Apparently, Alan's (ex-)website, “The Assyrian Aramaic Language Website”, is now being excluded from the Wayback Machine.  It has already helped me a lot, but I wanted to learn more from that website...
