The Syriac alphabet is used to write various forms of Syriac language in the Middle East and Southeast India. Syriac is the liturgical language of various churches (Syrian Orthodox, Assyrian, Maronite, Syrian Catholic, Chaldaean). The alphabet is also used to write modern Aramaic, and in some places, Arabic. It has been used to write a number of other languages, including Armenian, Persian, Turkish, and Malayalam. It is written right-to-left.
