Father Yakup Aydin talks about the Aramaic language spoken by Christ 2,000 years ago and still in use today among Christians of the East…
Asia comes right after Africa in regard to the number of languages spoken, with a figure close to 2,000. Among the countries of the continent, India is the one that contains the largest number, according to a recent census which listed some 860 languages. As for the other giant of the region, China, it is, for obvious political reasons, difficult to know the exact number of native languages spoken there.
Here you will find a set of documents relating to these Asian languages: a series of videos in Syriac in the Middle East (a descendant of the Aramaic language that Christ spoke), articles written by linguists, activists and journalists, and description sheets of the languages and language families of the continent.
