About the Assyrian Language
While there are not many native speakers of Assyrian today, it was first used back in the third millennium BC throughout the Middle East. It influenced ancient Akkadian and Sumerian, which eventually influenced modern languages such as Arabic, Persian and Hebrew. Due to instability throughout the Middle East during the past century many native speakers are living abroad in Europe, North American or Australia. The writing system was first used during the third millennium BC and was one of the first alphabets created. During the 1930s, a Latin alphabet for was developed due to the Soviet Union’s handling of minority languages.
