“These days, most speakers of Syriac come from Syria and Iraq, two countries which are wracked by civil war and from which many Syriac speakers are fleeing. An NEH-funded website devoted to the Syriac language is an international editorial collaboration led by experts at Vanderbilt and Princeton universities. Part of the website is a gazetteer containing descriptions of more than twenty-four hundred places relevant to the study of Syriac”
