A grammar of Aramaic in Persian

ARAMAIC WATCH: First Persian book on three ancient languages’ grammar released (Iran Book News Agency).
IBNA – The Persian book ‘Introduction to Grammar and Dictionaries of Syriac, Aramaic and Assyrian Languages’, compiled by Sa’eed Hayati was released.
The interview with the author is not the most lucid I have ever seen and I wonder if it was translated, badly, from Persian. Anyway, the book seems to involve the grammar of a range of Aramaic dialects and it was published in Persian, and that sounds like a good thing.
