Syriac language

The love poem in its Syriac version (ܣܘܪܝܝܐ), a language which count 3 million speakers, this translation come from northern Iraq. This Semitic language of the Middle East is a variant of Edessa's aramaic, developed with Christianity in the 2nd century. There are a few dialects for syriac language. Owing to Edessa position as a center of christianity, the bible was translated into syriac, a large corpus of christian syriac writings apparead, and syriac became widely used as a literary and liturgical language. The earliest know text in the syriac script is dated to the 1 century. The syriac system being descended from aramaic, is consonantal, but developed various means for marking vowels.
