Assyrian is not Armenian Apr 16, 2009

Hi punam,

Assyrian language is a old language like Latin. I think, that Assyrian is simillar to modern Aramaic (Minority in Turkey)

Armenian is a state Lnaguage, about 10 Mio. people - Christian - speak Armenian.
(Sorry for my Englisch)

Assyrian language Apr 16, 2009

"The ancient people of Assyria spoke an Assyrian dialect of the Akkadian language, a branch of the Semitic languages. The first inscriptions, called Old Assyrian (OA), were made in the Old Assyrian period. In the Neo-Assyrian period the Aramaic language became increasingly common, more so than Akkadian — this was thought to be largely due to the mass deportations undertaken by Assyrian kings, in which large Aramaic-speaking populations, conquered by the Assyrians, were relocated to other parts of the empire. The ancient Assyrians also used the Sumerian language in their literature and liturgy, although to a more limited extent in the Middle- and Neo-Assyrian periods, when Akkadian became the main literary language.

The utter and complete destruction of the Assyrian capitals of Nineveh and Assur by the Babylonians and Medes ensured that the bilingual elite, perhaps the few remaining still competent in Akkadian, were wiped out. By the 6th century B.C., much of the Assyrian population that survived used Aramaic and not the cuneiform Akkadian. In time, Akkadian would no longer be used by the Assyrians, although many aspects of the culture associated, such as naming with Assur, continued, and do so today."

Maybe the script is like Arabic.

Assyrian/Chaldean/Syriac people Apr 16, 2009

There are Assyrians in many countries including New Zealand. They have their own language and alphabet. There are Assyrian interpreters in NZ. If you get stuck I can give you details. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assyrian/Chaldean/Syriac_people#Language

Probably actually this language:

Largest Syriac community outside upper Mesopotamia is in Sweden Apr 16, 2009

Punam,

The largest Syriac community outside their homeland (Northern Medopotamia) is in Sweden. After migrating there from southeastern Turkey during the 70s, they have settled practically in all of Europe. You may want to contact either the Syriac Union or individual associations or clubs that are members of the Union.

Good luck

Punam, the contacts I sent you are experts for the language that has been dead for thousands of years. I assumed you needed a cuneiform inscription or some such thing. What are you actually after?

Info regarding Assyrian Feb 22, 2013

I am an Assyrian-English-Assyrian interpreter/translator in California.
I've been doing Assyrian-English-Assyrian translation and interpretation for several years.
I started out as a community volunteer helping needy Assyrians in dealing with translation/interpretation services for Health, immigration and naturalization, employment, social security, insurance, education, tax preparation services.
I am also an over-the-telephone interpreter with a well know language services companies in the U.S.

Assyrian is an ancient language of the Assyrian people dating back to the 7th century B.C.
The Assyrian language today is known as Syriac and Aramaic. Assyrian, Arabic and Hebrew are 3 sister languages which developed from Aramaic.

The Assyrian Empire at it's height expanded throughout the middle east including all or part of today's Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and the Arabian desert. After the fall of Nineveh in 512 B.C. Assyrians became subjects of other nations and countries and since then, became citizens of those countries and adopted those countries languages but maintained their own language which developed into different dialects and included foreign words including Arabic, Turkish, Farsi, Kudish and English (during the 19th century).

Assyrians migrated to the America in the late 1800's and established communities in New York and the east coast, Chicago, IL and later Detroit, MI, and Turlock, CA. Today the largest Assyrian population is in Chicago and it's suburbs, California, Turlock/Modesto, San Jose, San Francisco & Los Angeles, Phoenix Arizona and Texas. Assyrians later migrated to England, Australia (Sydney area), then Germany, Sweden, Netherlands and France.

Assyrians adopted the Christian faith during the 1st century A.D. Then they had lost their identity and were known by other names. People without a country of their own, spread throughout the middle east and members of different Christian denominations, became known by several different religious names which I will mention below.

Named Nestorians are the followers of the Assyrian Church Of The East of Iraq, Iran, Syria and Lebanon.
Jacobites also known as Suryoyo from the Tur Abdin area of Eastern Turkey and Syria.
Chaldeans mostly from Iraq and Iran.
There's historical evidence that the Lebanese Maronites/Melkites are also of Assyrian origin, however they were Arabized and adopted the Arabic language as their first language, and commonly use Arab (non-muslim) names, however their liturgical language in church services is still Aramaic.

I can go on for pages but I don't want to put anyone to sleep. The above should be enough to inform you for who Assyrians are. If you wish more information I will gladly offer what I can.

If you wish to use my Assyrian-English-Assyrian Translation & interpretation services I will be happy to help.

Sincerely,

Bardaisan
