Couple of questions
#20
Andrey,
I see you visited the forum more then 1 month ago.
I was just recently registered but I have wish to help you in these questions.
The discussion was pretty long ago but the questions are actual.

Quote:1) What is the best way to approach Aramaic/Syriac studying for non-Syriac speaking people like me? i made use of the Peshitta at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.dukhrana.com/peshitta">http://www.dukhrana.com/peshitta</a><!-- m -->. It is quite helpful and organized. Looking at the analysis (e.g. this one), i noticed a kind of number reference system (simply called "ID", like Strong's). Is that system widely established/accepted? Does anyone have a list of extensive dictionaries? Is there any software (i have the module for e-Sword, but that's kind of a very little start, considering i have access to so many resources on the Greek in programs like Libronix)?

I stay with dukhrana.com, usually I like to edit the 3 english translations with the Greek and Latin and read the Peshitta comparing to the translations which are as targums for me.
Forget about different dictionaries, commercial books etc. Words go though evolution thus changing their meanings/adding/subtracting. Study word meaning by the context to what it belongs.

Quote:2) Is there any kind of complete reference for differences between the Greek and the Syriac texts? Or a Greek-Syriac-English interlinear?

Why do you need it, why to overload your head? The life is to short.
Find something more useful.

Quote:3) Which Greek Manuscript comes closest to the Syriac text? Or which Family? Or is this undiscernable?

I admit that it is NT text of the Greek Orthodox church.

Quote:4) Can anyone provide me with a list of (preferably published) books pro Aramaic Primacy / con Aramaic Primacy? The more books on the list, the better. Interestingly, it is quite hard to find more than a handful of books on this topic, and i guess this could be a FAQ topic.

1. Very good book in pdf format is "Was the new testament really written in greek?" by Rafael Lancaster.
2. Download "wesite downloader" from the Internet and download all this forum for offline browsing.

Ivan.
