First of all, I am glad that I have read it. But I still have many question on it. I try�asking one by one.
When I read the book with the title," The History of Syriac Literature and Sciences"� it is told that at the begining of 6th century Aramaic/Syriac had been split in 2 dialects/pronounciation�that is Western Syriac and Eastern Syriac.
But when I read "The Hidden Pearl" volume I, p.25. It is said that there is many dialects at the time of Jesus Christ (Middle Aramaic, 3rd century BC - 2nd century� AD).
My questions are :
1. Actually which one Aramaic of�Jesus Christ's language/dialects is? (Nabataean, Palestinian Aramaic, Palmyrene, Hatran (Harran?), Old Syriac, Biblical Aramaic, Qumran Aramaic) ?
2. Is there any correlation between 'Western Aramaic/dialect' (at the beginning 6th century AD) and 'Western dialects'� as it is mentioned in the Hidden Pearl, vol.I, p.25 above?��
