Inspired by Peshitta.org
here is my attempt to bring forth a comprehensive Aramaic grammar for
all of you Aramaic weekend-warriors out there :-)
This assumes that you know nothing about the language, so if you are
already familliar with some of the lessons to begin with, you can always
skip ahead. Use this page as means to however you learn best. Just remember
that each lesson builds upon the one before it, so you may miss some things
by skipping around.
As always, I have copyrights on these lessons. Feel free to use them
anywhere for anything just give me an email first :-) I
love to hear where my work is used (and I love it even more when it is
distributed free of charge)!
The Semetic Alphabet in all of it's forms.
Eastern, Western, Edessan, and Hebrew vowels as well as dialect
marks and "asperations."

of how singular and plural are represented in Aramaic.
||Prepositions- The 4 Aramaic
