Imperial Aramaic Unicode Script

By the eighth century BC, the old Aramaic alphabet, which the Arameans adopted from the Phoenician alphabet, had developed into a separate script. It was used to write the Aramaic languages that the pre-Christian ancient Aramean people of the Fertile Crescent spoke. Assyrians replaced their Akkadian language and its cuneiform script with Aramaic and its script, and Jews (but not Samaritans) adopted the Aramaic language as their vernacular and began using the Aramaic alphabet ev. It was also adopted by other peoples as their own alphabet when empires and their subjects underwent linguistic Aramaization during a language shift for governing purposes, a precursor to Arabization centuries later.
