About dialects of the Aramaic language
When I was reading the Acts, I discovered that apostle Paul was traveling in gentile countries and first of all made contacts with Jews. It is possible that he wrote the Epistles to Jews. I do ask all who knows to amswer my questions (better if with facts and/or references).
1) The Jews in these gentile countries, what language and script did they communicate with Paul?
2) In <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... amaic1.jpg</a><!-- m --> there is Lord's prayer in Hebrew letters. The first two words does not correspond to the words of the Lord's prayer of COE Peshitta text. Is it different dialect or is it a Syriac text translated from some Greek fragment?
3) It is much said about dialects of the Aramaic (I mean first century). What they are in? Is it just difference in pronunciations or some spellings are different or what?
4) In <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> it says "At the beginning of the Christian era, Aramaic, in various dialects was the dominant spoken language of Syria and Mesopotamia. It developed a number of literary dialects, known as Palestinian Jewish Aramaic, Samaritan Aramaic, Syro-Palestinian Christian Aramaic, Syriac, Babylonian Talmudic Aramaic, and Mandaic Aramaic. In Galilee[14]and Samaria[15], Aramaic dialects became the day-to-day means of communication." Is there somewhere online explanations what the differences are?

Thank You in advance for the answers. Especially the answer from Paul Younan is expected.
Thank You very much.
