A Freakishly Simple Primacy Proof
#41
Zardak,

My grandparents lived for over 20 years in Athens before their entry to the united states was approved. My uncles were born there. They all spoke Aramaic there, and still did in Chicago. I don't think you understand that just because someone is in Greece or Chicago, doesn't mean they know the language or are proficient in it. They knew enough to make it tolerable, but the language they spoke at home, with relatives and especially at church was neo-Aramaic. And it still is.

I still have family in Greece and Lebanon and Syria and Iraq and Australia and Russia. We all write letters and emails to each other in Aramaic. They live and work in those countries, so obviously they have a proficiency in those local languages. But Aramaic is their main tongue and what binds the family and community together. Read about the Assyrian refugee communities in Greece. Lots of articles on the Internet.
