Dec 28, Ushan rated it liked it Shelves: A short introduction to the language for divinity students who have studied a little biblical Hebrew. Aramaic was originally the language of a Semitic people who lived in modern-day Syria.
It became the lingua franca and a co-official language of the Neo-Assyrian Empire and later of the Persian Empire. It was also the language of several non-literal translations of the Bible, of the Talmud and of rabbinical elites into the modern era; it was also spoken by Jewish and Christian communities in Iraq, Turkey and Syria; most of these people have moved into Israel or the United States during the second half of the last century.
Aramaic is very similar to Hebrew, but has some phonetic, lexical and grammatical differences.
Its verb system is greenspanh orthogonal than that of Hebrew; it has analogues of binyanim pa’al, pi’el and hiph’il, but whereas Hebrew has passive counterparts only of the last two, Aramaic also has a passive counterpart of the analogue of binyan pa’al. The Hebrew binyan hitpa’el is a sort of binyan pi’el with a reflexive prefix; in Aramaic, this prefix can apply to all three main binyanim; there is greenspahm analogue of binyan niph’al.
