Getting a Better Quantitative Grip on Galilean Verb Forms

peal_quantity

I’m trying to get a better idea of which verbal stems/forms are used for each root in the Galilean grammar I am working on. Further down the list from this screenshot, it’s curious how certain rare forms (such as Poel, Palel, and various Quadraliterals like Palpel, etc.) show up as the base form for common roots, or how roots common under one stem in one dialect are just as common in Galilean, but use a different stem.

Galilean Aramaic Workshop & Classes (In-Person and Online)

The-Galilean-Aramaic-Academy

So, now it is time to announce an upcoming worshop on Galilean Aramaic in March as well as start finding what times work for both in-person and online Galilean Aramaic classes. Polls for the classes are below.

Galilean Aramaic: Speaking The Language of Christ

Registration is $50 (and waivers will be available for those in need) and it’s happening on March 28th, 2015 from 1PM to 4PM. It’s a condensed 3 hour workshop which goes over history, the basics of reading, writing, and speaking and some storytelling and conversation. The fee also covers printed learning materials.

For more information — and registration — for this event click here.

The In-Person Galilean 1 Class

Registration will be $100 (waivers also available). It will meet one hour, twice a week for four weeks (8 sessions total) at Christ Church New Brunswick and will cover introductory conversational (spoken) material, reading, writing, memorization, and recitation. Each student will keep a S’far Da‘watha (“Book of Knowledge” or “Book of Opinions,” a journal of one’s work and inspirations) in which to keep their notes and musings.

If it is well received, this class will become the first step towards a certificate program that will award, to accomplished students who pass written and oral exams, the title Talmid Leshana (“Student of the Language”).

The following poll will be used to help schedule the class.

New Lessons Preview

002 - This is Jacob

For those of you interested in what the new lessons will look like, here’s the page of the first one as it’s going up. If all goes well it should be ready to go with audio by tonight or Sunday.

http://aramaicnt.org/galilean-aramaic/conversational-galilean-class/unit-2-lesson-1-saying-hello/

The format is similar to a “turn the page” storybook where the student starts an audio recording and then turns the page when prompted, interacting with the lesson as it progresses.

Peace,
-Steve
