THE ASSYRIAN CHRISTIANS (from � and some still in � Iraq) have been in the news a fair bit lately, for obvious reasons. I haven't linked to the articles because they seemed outside even the very loose scope of this blog. But it's worth mentioning that they have provided various resources for learning their Assyrian dialect of Aramaic online. The Languages on the Web.com site has a page of Aramaic links, with the claim that, " Unlike many other web sites related to languages, only serious and useful sites are listed here." That's perhaps a bit of a stretch, and I wouldn't necessarily recommend every link on the page, but lots of them do look serious and useful. Add to them The Assyrian Aramaic Language website, which has a long series of graded lessons, and this site with the Syriac Peshitta in the original script and in translation.
