Assyrian Neo-Aramaic

Assyrian Neo-Aramaic (also known as Assyrian, Aisorski, Assyrianci, Assyriski, Lishana Aturaya, Neo-Syriac, Sooreth, Suret, Sureth, or Suryaya Swadaya) is a Neo-Aramaic dialect, spoken by an estimated 220,000 people in north-western Iran, south-eastern Turkey, and throughout the Assyrian-Chaldean-Syriac diaspora. The division of the Assyrian from Chaldean Neo-Aramaic was a consequence of the religious schism of 1552 which led to the formation of the Assyrian Church of the East.
