Raman...say it ain't so!!! What the hell are you doing trying to covince the Troglodytes of Of outer Chaldea of anything? You've got me cross eyed as well with your explanations. Of course we are all one...we sound JUST as stupid as each other!

Mar Toma Odo (1853-1918)

Mar Toma Odo (1853-1918) was the Chaldean Archbishop in Urmia from 1892 and is considered as the father of neo-Syriac literature. In 1906 he published a book in Urmia in it he suggested that one should return to the “original” name “Atoraye” instead of using “Suryaye (Suraye), since the latter had come into being through apocopation of the initial “a” and a fricative pronunciation of the “t”. Mar Toma Odo offered this proposal for the fact that these phonetic processes do occur as dialect variation within Neo-Syriac. Thus, postvocalic “t” in Urmia corresponds to “ž” in Tkhuma and “s” in Sanandaj, and truncations of word-initial elements are fairly common (e.g. khepyaya and pyaya “barefoot” as variants in Sanandaj).
