Learning Aramaic Pronunciation

It is an Eastern pronunciation, but more importantly this is what's known as a dialect of "Neo-Aramaic" (specifically, the Assyrian/Chaldean dialect). The relationship to the classical tongue is akin to our modern English to Victorian English.

It is a very simplified Aramaic compared to the old. It is the modern standard vernacular of Aramaic speakers today.


Shlama Paul,

I bought the Children's Bible in 365 stories in Neo-Aramaic and it uses eastern vowels.
So if this video is Neo-Aramaic too, that would mean both western and eastern vowels are used in Neo-Aramaic right? Just trying to get my head around it.
