Neo-Mandaic is an Aramaic language spoken by 300-500 people
in Iran and among the Mandaean diaspora. It is more conservative
than other Neo-Aramaic languages, though has been influenced
by Arabic and Persian. It is a modern descendent of Classical
Mandaic, the liturgical language of the Mandaean religion in
Iran and Iraq. There are two dialects: Ahvāz and
Khorramshahr, which are mutually intelligible.
