Help notes

“I used the online Aramaic dictionary on this website to find out the Aramaic translation for an English word, but was instantly confused by the number of different forms of this word and by the properties of each. For example: lexeme, root, gender, number, suffix gender, etc.  Could you please send me any information that could help me understand these properties.”
Thank you for your interest in the Aramaic language.  To understand all the properties would require a fairly comprehensive grammar book designed for a college classroom environment.  As a starting point, we recommend the following book and websites:
