O.T and N.T. Aramaic

Shlama Akhi,

Spanish and Italian are not dialects, they are completely different languages.

Pick any 10 people today who speak modern Neo-Aramaic dialects, and read to them the Aramaic of Daniel. And I will bet you all 10 people who speak modern Neo-Aramaic will understand the Aramaic of Daniel 100%. They will even translate what it means to you in English.

Now do the same with Spanish speakers of Italian. Or vice versa. Or better yet, ask them to understand the text of a 2,600 year old Latin text.

If you are equating Aramaic dialects with Spanish vs Italian, I don't think you really comprehend how contiguous the Aramaic language has been over it's nearly 3,000 year history.
