He says that there are certain Iraqi Arabic words that are not Arabic or Aramaic in origin, & must be from the Sumerian/Akkadian days... That the Arabic dialect in Iraq is unique to Iraq suggests that these people are descendent from an original, older people with a unique language that has influenced the modern tongue, because language, among other things, is inherited. Of course, no one is a "purebred." That's impossible. Even our ancestors weren't purebred - they mingled a lot, most likely because their cultures were more tolerant of each other.
