    what are ways of telling the time in syriac?
    do u use 12 hour format or 24 hour time format?
    for example how do u write 10:10 a.m. and 10.10 p.m. in syriac (fusha)?

    Hello nora

    Afternoon is RAMSHO/RAMSHA - I can't copy the Syriac font it comes out block letters on my ipad.
    the written form in estrangello is different to the serto script.
    serto is used by the Maronite Church and Syriac orthodox while the Assyrians largely use estrangello.
    prononciation is different. Ramsho in west Syriac (us), ramsha in east Syriac (Assyrians). It is not female/male but different dialect pronounciation the written is the same.
    like in Lebanon abyad and abyod.

    Good afternoon is Brikh Ramsho

    MORNING - Safro
    good morning - Brikh Safro

    the number and time thingy is the same convention as in Arabic/ French

    9:07 for example is Tesh30 wa shab3o, but we use 9:07 as there are no numerals per se in Syriac.

    Anyhow, I respect your (plural) desire and will to revive the language, and as jiu says: never doubt that a small group of people could change so much (something along the line, w bel ezn mn jiu )

    I like your imagination and I would like to add my imagination also, if each Lebanese revives his ancestors language you would find hundreds of languages in a tiny country because Lebanon is a cosmopolitan state .

    As shreek said, I know a little Syriac... But I know more about Jewish Babylonian Aramaic (which isn't all that different).

    As far as the AM/PM stuff goes, it's pretty similar to Hebrew, I know many Neo-Aramaic speakers and they usually say stuff like "? ??" or " ??".

    Can you add Syriac besides Arabic and Hebrew just to know how close are the three languages ?

    1-Good night = (Ar.) Lilah Tayyebah ? ? (He.) Lillah Tov ( ? ( ? ?? The root is TB -?? - ??

    - 2-You are right / honest = (Ar.) Anta Ssadeq ? (He.) Ata Ssodeq ( ? ( ? The root is SsDQ -
    -

    - 3- I received your registered letter (Ar.) ? (He) ?? ?? ?? ??

    Let us put each Hebrew word besides Arabic ( literally) you will be surprised :

    1-?? ( Qabalti ) ?? it's derived from the root QBL ( (? ? ? it means to receive ?/ // /?

    2-?? ( Mekhtabkha ) it's derived from KTB ? ? ? ) ) it means to write ??/ ??/ /??

    3-?? ( HaRashom) it's derived from RSM ( ( ? ? ? it means to register /?/ ?

    Another good example to know the close relationship between Arabic and Hebrew languages : The word Cinema : KOLNO'A -

    = it's built from two words ( QOL ) and ( NO3 ) which are identical as Arabic in meaning and words derived from same root , details as follows :

    ( QOL ) in Arabic
    ( NO3 ) in Arabic

    saying, speech, utterance = = ?? ?? ? ??
    to reel , waver, swing, roll= =? ? , , ?? , ??=??

    So the word "QOLNO3" "," ", " " means in both languages the swinging speech or voice which is Cinema = motion-picture ( Movies ).

    What about the Syriac language ?
    Is there any similarities with Arabic and Hebrew ?

    Cinema in Syriac = Cinema, same with film....(it was invented after the language)
    saying, speech, utterance = meltho
    to reel, waver, swing, roll = kerko, (roll), faleg (doubt)
