The Assyrian Alphabets

Given how popular this section is, and how many people come here to learn the language, I think it is only natural that we have a sticky for the Assyrian alphabets.

Let us work together on this, to write the Assyrian alphabet please, and their English pronunciation.

To start, there are 22 letters in the Assyrian (Syriac) language, and we type from right to left.

ܐ  olaf
ܒ  beth
ܓ  gomal
ܕ  dolath

ܘ  waw
ܙ  zai
ܚ  Heth
ܛ  Teth
ܝ  yodh
ܟܟ  kof
ܠ  lomadh
ܡܡ  meem
ܢܢ  noon
ܣ  simkath
ܥ ?eh
ܦ  feh
ܨ  Sodheh
ܩ  qof
ܪ  resh
ܫ  sheen
ܬ  taw

Hi Ashoor.
I am new here to the site, but glad to have found what I've been searching for.
I want to learn Aramaic very, very much, and find out more.

Reading the replies has shown that I am not alone.

Thanks for this site.
