Christian Palestinian Aramaic (CPA) is one of the modern scholarly names given to the form of Palestinian Aramaic (PA) employed by the Christian Melkite community in Palestine from around the 5 th to the 13 th centuries. It is mainly preserved in short inscriptions, palimpsests and later liturgical manuscripts. The dialect shares many linguistic features with Jewish Palestinian Aramaic and Samaritan Aramaic.
