Aramaic Gospel of Matthew {Audio}

I think I read somewhere recently that the modern Assyrian dialect used by those Assyrian peoples of The Church of the East, that they speak and write today was developed sometime in late 1700's to early 1800's, and that before that time it was always the same as is given in The Peshitta Scriptures. I might have heard that wrong though. 

Borota, are you able to read fluently straight from the Aramaic found in the Peshitta text, with the eastern pronunciations? 


Yes, I can read all Aramaic scripts (vowels included) that are, as far as I am aware, in use currently: Estrangela, Eastern Swadaya, Western Serto, and Hebrew Ashuri.

The detailed lessons by Ewan MacLeod at were very helpful to get there. Ewan, if you see this, thanks so much for your efforts.
