Lameen Souag on "Some Minority Languages of the Mosul Plain"

My daily vacation post will be up this evening. Meanwhile, I thought I'd point you to a post sadly relevant to the current events in northern Iraq:  linguist Lameen Souag at Jabal al-Lughat  on "Some Minority Languages of the Mosul Plain."

He addresses Neo-Aramaic, the two main forms of Kurdish, related languages such as Gorani, the dialects of Turkmen and Yazidis, etc.
