Word play in aramaic and syriac
#34
Akhi Steve,

In regards to your other question: it calls it Hebrew because the Hebrews used the word. If I say a word in Urmian Dialect is "parsaya", I don't necessarily mean that it's Persian. I mean that Persian people who speak Urmian Aramaic use that word.

We often refer to each other as Lebanese, Iraqi, Iranian, etc, depending on where we come from. Although we all speak the same language in different dialects and accents. And we all consider ourselves Assyrians.

I've been told many times my language is "Lebanese" because my parents came from Lebanon and their choice of loan words or some Aramaic forms reflect that fact.

With regard to rabbuli, it could easily be explained as a confusion of a lamed and a nun. They can appear similar in their non-final forms, and are very often confused (especially in Estrangelo, and more so in Swadaya). So it could be an early scribal corruption of rabbuni.
