Creator Seepo, Catrin
Hamilton, Michael
 
Description Chaldean Neo-Aramaic is a Semitic languagespoken by the Chaldean Christians in Iraq and aroundthe world. There are many dialects of Chaldean Neo-Aramaic, and in this research, I will be examining ACNA,which is spoken in the town of Alqosh1 in the Plainsof Nineveh in the northern part of Iraq. Currently, thelanguage is in decline and is understudied. Therefore,this paper attempts to preserve the ACNA by generallydescribing its syntax, and specifically determining itsword order, which typically refers to the order of subject(S), verb (V) and object (O) in a sentence.
