Victor Alexander's Aramaic New Testament
SteveCaruso Wrote:Some of the things that Vic Alexander takes for granted (like the singular 1st person imperfect starting with "ne-", the allophone for kaf sounding like CH in "church", and very solidly Eastern Aramaic vocabulary choices) are categorically incorrect.

Not to mention the fact that Victor Alexander's Neo-Aramaic dialect, that of Urmi, is the most removed from the classical pronunciation. Ashiret dialects (Tkhuma, Tiari and Jilu) are far more archaic, and lack the Persian influences in vocalization that Urmian suffers from ( the "CH" for Kaph that you mention, is wholly absent in Ashiret annunciation, which retains the "Kh" sound as in the gutteral )
