So what: Assyr-Aramaic or Aramaic-Assyr ?
What's the language really ?
See the pic above
BTW & FYI:
That's basically a mini-hack I've done [I think it was for the good purpose of evidencing and (en)lightening].
Though the webmaster Aldawood has disabled/locked any pic downloading from his
ridiculous site, voilą - here is the evidence we need for our conversation.
Now on your message:
: Wow, just found this site by accident....
+++ In your case always an accident.
: WHY is there a U.S. flag on that introductory page? Hm?
+++ Be happy: So the low standard of that site goes under the US flag.
:If I was living in the Mid East or Europe or elsewhere & I visited that
page, it would make me feel a bit weird to see that flag (of all flags) on
I'd say unprofessional and arrogating.
: instead of something more global
+++ Global, you said?
Yeah! Oui! Si! Sim! Da! Ja! Ken! Evet! Na'am ! Aiwa! Jo! Igen! Ba'leh....
: or "Assyrian" in spirit.
+++ But above all:
What now exactly?
Either "Assyrian-Aramaic" or "Aramaic-Assyrian"?
In the website logo (see above) the English text is contradicting the
1) In Engl:
i.e. it's ARAMAIC of the Assyrian type (in English: The adjective "Assyrian"
qualifies the noun "ARAMAIC ")
2) In "Assyrian":
"(Lishana) aturaya aramaya"
i.e. its ASSYRIAN of the Aramaic type (in "Assyrian or whatever": The
adjective "Aramaic" qualifies the noun "ASSYRIAN ")
+++ So, what now exactly?
+++ Didn't notice?
+++ So much for the consistence/expertise of that website.
+++ Dear Sadie,
How long will "Assyrians" swallow such incompetence?
PS: Did the sharp Mr Aldawood a "language deal" to get sour-sweet-lookin Susan for at least one night?
+++ Such would be and IS the way history and "science" is being written and continued and petrified as a "fable convenue" or "story of 1000+1 (more or less eventless) nights" as long as there are enough idiots out there to not ask any questions, to not scrutinize and to not use their hearts and brains.
