Abstract:

The Aramaic language has continued to be spoken in various dialects down to
modern times. Many of these dialects, however, are now endangered due to
political events in the Middle East over the last hundred years. This work,
in three volumes, presents a description of one such endangered neo-Aramaic
dialect, that of the Assyrian Christian community of the Barwar region in
northern Iraq. It is a unique record of the dialect based on interviews
with the surviving older generation of the community. The work consists of
three volumes. Volume one contains a detailed grammatical description of
the dialect, including sections on phonology, morphology and syntax. Volume
two contains an extensive glossary of the lexicon of the dialect with
illustrations of various aspects of the material culture. Volume three
contains transcriptions of numerous recorded texts, including folktales,
ethnographic texts, songs, and proverbs.
