Is Aramaic a single language?

 Aramaic is a language group that includes a number of related dialects that were spoken historically in various parts of the Middle East. These dialects are collectively known as Aramaic, but they are not a single language in the sense that they are not mutually intelligible. 

The Aramaic language group includes several distinct dialects, such as Eastern Aramaic (spoken in parts of Iraq, Iran, and Turkey), Western Aramaic (spoken in parts of Lebanon and Syria), and Classical Aramaic (used as a lingua franca across the Middle East in ancient times). 

These dialects differ from each other in terms of vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation, and they have evolved over time in different ways. However, they all share a common ancestor and are closely related to each other, which is why they are considered part of the same language group.
