Culture & History / Re: Zurnas

no because there's no standard form/length/dimension on how a zurna or duduk is supposed to be, thus every created zurna and duduk are unique in sound, to the musician with a trained ear at least.

Western musical instruments are all created similarly with as similar as possible dimensions and constructtion so that they'll achieve the same tune and pitch as each other. From this, there's no such thing as an "on-key" zurna or duduk as they were created off key.
What mode is a zurna in?

The keys of the one in your post like like they're a natural B major/Gb minor scale.

Unfortunately people do not know how to stay on topic :P
So what's your opinion on this thread? Is modern Assyrian a Aramaic language? :)

I doubt they would like Assyrians much but they would probably tolerate them as they behave themselves and aren't Muslim.
They would just see as a slightly improved Middle Easterners. But we're definitely not going to be kings in their eyes.

- We're not descended form ancient Assyrians/Akkadians
- That we're a concoction of Levantine, Arab and Persian ethnic groups

Jesus idea of revenge is to let a higher authority (God) take care of the person who did you wrong. Secondly, how can you follow such a command against a WHOLE religion that tells its followers to do wrong? I'm pretty sure when Jesus talked about forgiveness and not taking revenge, it applies to CIVILIZED people.

That Evangelical American guy who wrote this article is looking WAY DEEP into it.

He's viewing Jesus like how Muslim apologists view him as ("Jesus is just as bad as Muhammad derp derp"). Can't believe you're falling for that.

not just that, Classical Syriac had P and F, it had Heth instead of Kheth, and TH with T and Th and t made a grammatical difference.
At least eastern Assyrian has more Akkadian influence (the most ancient Assyrian language).

yea but how would you define it? How would u consider who's Assyrian or not?
If you have Assyrian parents.

If you want to go further, speaking the actual language.

yea they're a lost cause then. It's like Americans usually say:
If you're not a democrat when you're young, you have no heart.
If you're not a republican when you're old(er), you have no brain.

Clearly I have no heart since my first vote was the donald himself.
I'm not a fan of the idea of republicanism, but I would've voted for Donald Trump in an instant.
