Who speaks Chaldean?
The Chaldean people are descendants of the ancient Assyrian and Babylonian civilizations. Historically, Chaldeans are Iraq’s indigenous people, with a 5,500-year history there, dating back to Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization.
Chaldean, Assyrian…what’s the difference?
Chaldeans are synonymous with Babylonians and are also often referred to as Assyrians and/or Syriacs. Specifically though, historically Assyrians ruled northern Mesopotamia, while Chaldeans ruled in the south, in an empire called Babylon or Babylonia. Consequently, the Assyrians are simply Assyrians while the Chaldeans are/were Babylonians. The Syriacs had their kingdom in Damascus, Syria. However, when it comes to Assyrian and Chaldean languages, there is not much difference. The terms “Syriac” and “Chaldean” are used to designate people from those respective churches. Historically speaking, both of these groups of people are ethnic Assyrians. Their geographical lineage and church history has contributed to linguistic differences, resulting in the languages of today. Though many different types of dialects have arisen, they are often indistinguishable. Because of these intricate nuances, Cal Interpreting & Translations always takes extreme care to provide the most highly qualified and experienced Chaldean interpreters, taking into consideration cultural and historical facets of each request from our clients.
