Abstract:

Aramaic has been spoken uninterruptedly for more than 3000 years, yet a
generation from now most Aramaic dialects will be extinct. The study of the
Northeastern Neo-Aramaic (NENA) dialects has increased dramatically in the
past decade as linguists seek to record these dialects before the
disappearance of their last speakers. This work is a unique documentation
of the now extinct Jewish Neo-Aramaic dialect of Challa (modern-day
Çukurca, Turkey). It is based on recordings of the last native speaker of
the dialect, who passed away in 2007. In addition to a grammatical
description, it contains sample texts and a glossary of the dialect. Jewish
Challa belongs to the cluster of NENA dialects known as 'lishana deni' and
reference is made throughout to other dialects within this group.
