Yes, aziza is masculine, azizta is feminine.

Yup!

In Assyrian, masculine nouns always end in -a. Feminine nouns end in -ta.

Dear: Aziza, azizta

The vowel can change in some, like:

Assyrian: Suraya, Sureta
Dog: Kalba, kalabta

It even continues into non-nouns:

Thank you: baseema (to a male), basimta (to a female)

Shlama! I am looking for a NATIVE speaker of Assyrian Aramaic (from Northern Iraq - not Turoryo) for private lessons on Skype. Once/twice a week, willing to pay in advance for the lessons. If you are interested, please send me a private message or an email to veganissimo@gm..

:lol: Thank you!
