    From a previous post in the thread:

    Akkadian - Aramaic - Meaning

    Dilibat - dulbat - the planet Venus/to ask for something

    "Venus name might embody the function of honours and gifts to the divine when seeking their favours: such acts can be interpreted as the enticement, seduction or charm of gods by mortals.”

    Dilibat - dilibta/diliba - the planet Venus/fiancée-fiancé (f/m)
    I am not familiar with astronomy terms in our language. But, apparently, the name for Venus is this:

    Eastern phonetic : ' bil ti
    [Sky → Astronomy → Planets]
    English : Venus , Planet Venus

    Birko. What is the author here, Elitzur Avraham Bar-Asher Siegal, talking about? Have any idea? I would take the Syriac translation of the term to mean this (rough transliteration in red font by me):

    Eastern Syriac : ܐܲܚܘܼܢܘܼܬܵܐ
    Western Syriac : ܐܰܚܽܘܢܽܘܬܳܐ
    Eastern phonetic : a ḥu ' nu: ta [akunwata]
    [Human → Family]
    English : brotherhood, the state of being (a) brother(s) , a body of men associated together by a common bond of interest, as of the same profession ;
    French : la fratrie , la confrérie , un groupe d'hommes ayant un centre d'intérêt commun (une profession par exemple) ;
    Dialect : Urmiah
    I can see where he is getting "like them" from. But, I do not know. Perhaps you can explain.

    The ancient Akkadian language was likely most similar to modern Aramaic (which is spoken by many minority groups in the Semitic world) followed by northern Arabic and Hebrew.

    Only 5 years ago, a Syrian village fought to preserve this beautiful language.
