« Poetic Arabic and Dialects | Main | ẓalla 'to remain' in the Quranic Consonantal Text »




Excuse me to be off topic, I had a (last) question about the precedent post :
You said :"The more plausible explanation, to me, seems to be that the Aramaic that influenced the Quran was a dialect different from Syriac."
There's mainly two kind of Aramaic : East one: Syriac, West One : West Aramaic . If it is not Syriac, it is the West Aramaic. So that the Quranic text might have been written rather in Palestine for example in an Arabic coloured by West Aramaic rather than an Arabic coloured by Syriac. Correct ?
