Aramaic alphabet - The Lector - 04-09-2005

I cannot find a list of the Aramaic alphabet with the actual spelling of the letter alongside it. For example:

Alep (alep-lamad-pe)
Tsade (tsade-alep-daleth)

I dont even know if I have spelt these properly <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif" alt="Sad" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad --> so can anyone help direct me to this info please?

Shlama Lector,

Go to the home page of this web site; click on Grammar.This takes you to The Assyrian Language web site.
Go to Lesson 1; each letter has an individual lesson with the Aramaic word for that letter and its pronunciation. Beith
is Beth,Yodh,Tau, : Gamal is Gamal, Mem, Lamedh, etc.

Alan Aldawood has a great set of lessons - probably the best you'll find for Aramaic.
